I currently tether my BB Bold via Bluetooth. Works great. Android also has it (wifi).

Not all my devices have bluetooth so I'm interested in this upgrade.

I was at a briefing with RIM for the Playbook and it's coming for that reason apparently, as there will be no 3G on the Playbook, at least not first gen according to RIM.

The 4g playbooks are coming out this summer on Sprint.

You can also use bluetooth to communicate with the playbook. I had no heat issues with my Bold but if wifi uses less battery, then that's a good thing.

DOH. Thats almost sure to mean that the Bold 9700 wont be getting it, I think. If it were a point level upgrade, maybe, but a full rev level is an excuse for them to limit dev to only the newrst models :(

Blackberry World is next week so we'll know then about future devices and OSes.

I assume V8 will be the http://www.qnx.com/ version

I just want wifi tethering regardless of the name of the OS version.
