Default Dell Duo with a Verizon Hotspot? - 07-01-2011, 11:22 PM

I've ordered a Dell Duo recently for my business and I'm waiting anxiously for it to be delivered.

The question I have is this....I have a Verizon 3g Hotspot that I currently use for my laptop and I'm wondering if I'll be able to use that HotSpot with the Duo. A salesman I spoke to at Best Buy said that I could use the HotSpot but when I did some research, some of the info I found seemed contradictory.

I know the Duo has a slot for a sim card (for 3g connection) but I would prefer to use my HotSpot. Anyone have any information on this or has anyone already done this?

Thanks much in advance.

Works great! I have a Verizon MiFi and have connected the Duo to it almost everyday.

Thanks much PappyFire That takes a load off of my mind. I was looking at the Xoom and the Galaxy Tab at first but once I tried out the Duo I fell in love with Then after ordering it, I started seeing some info that you couldn't use the HotSpot and I got a bit worried

Thanks for the quick info

It's a PC, why wouldn't it?

I've used my Duo extensively with a 3G Verizon Hotspot. No problem.
