A few months back we broke details of the Mobile HotSpot that would be present in OS 6.1. A few OS numbers later and a couple device launches and the Mobile HotSpot feature is still lacking. However, it seems this feature will soon become available for the BlackBerry Torch 9850 from Sprint in the 4th Quarter.
It is likely the Mobile HotSpot feature will be rolled out on a per carrier basis. It isn’t clear if all BlackBerry 7 devices will receive the HotSpot feature. Nonetheless, the HotSpot feature is long overdue, as it was supposed to be integrated on the Storm2.
