    Default All day Wifi Hotspot?

    I'm wondering about the possibility of leaving the WiFi hotspot on all the time...with the Galaxy Tab in a nearby backpack for much of the day...being the data connection for wifi only mobile devices.

    1. Am I kidding myself thinking that this is possible and reasonable?
    2. How much would this kill the battery? Would it last the day and still be usable as a tablet without being plugged in?

    The $39 t-mobile plan is tempting...if it means I can drop my smartphone data package (on verizon) and use my Droid as a WiFi only device without VZW service. As a developer, I'm also a candidate for a Nexus S upon release...but having more than one data plan just isn't in my budget...certainly not three data plans. I could easily live with a cheap feature phone for voice calls.

    Thanks Clevin. This certainly opens up some new options for who/where/how I pay for my internet bits.
