I have been looking for wvdial for my android honeycomb tablet for using my Sony Ericsson Hazel (j20i) mobile (non-andoird) as modem.
ie, I have non-android mobile with GPRS enabled.
I like to connect this to my honeycomb tablet then use my mobile as modem.
But sadly, honeycomb does not have wvdial.
Any thoughts ?

Umm..sorry to sound stupid, but what exactly is wvdial?

WvDial is a utility that helps in making modem-based connections to the Internet that is included in some important Linux distributions.
WvDial is a Point-to-Point Protocol dialer.
It dials a modem and starts pppd in order to connect to the Internet.
