well I rarely am outside of WiFi reception or a wall socket for power... this will mostly be used at home as well, so again - WiFi. but as you said, the tethering from my evo (or even wireless AP on evo) will solve thatproblems. glad you are interested too - the actual sales site took them off as per order from Archos - the release date is not actually specified and my be until November... so time to think. but for me.... this is a must have I hope you do check it out and let me know what makes you decide to or not to buy. my only worry is the 256mb of built in ram... but from reviewers and some reading I DO NOT think that will actually be a big deal. I hope I don't have the money, really. But I did place the pre-order. I love my HTC Evo and hope for more customization and opportunities this will make available ... no charge til delivery so I have some time to think.... but I believe YES is the right answer.
