    What do you mean by "bridge"? Most of the data for Android phones is cloud-based, so it's generally the same source (for email, contacts and calendar certainly, for proprietary apps you'll have to check but DropBox/Ubuntu One/etc. can be your friend here). WiFi tethering will let you have a WiFi-only tablet able to access 3G/4G, similar things may be able to be setup with Bluetooth. And, if you're into cards, I'm sure there are some excellent bridge games out there...

    Plus, Google's stock didn't just drop 20% so chances are they'll be here next year, and in one piece!

    Yes, this is called "tethering" and just about any phone/tablet combo can do it via WiFi or bluetooth. Note that your carrier may have an extra fee for tethering, this is why I'm hoping for a ~2G unrestricted plan from Verizon since it will save me a bundle.

    I routinely tether my NookColor to my Evo over 3G when a Wifi hotspot isn't available. The app is called Wireless Tether and I think you need to be rooted to use it though.

    I too am interested in this. What I am looking for is if an Android phone and tablet can be linked so that when someone calls your phone the CID info will appear on the tablet along with possibly an answer/ignore option? This would be nice if you had your BT on, but didn't feel like lugging your phone and tablet around a room.
