What exactly is a mobile hotspot? Does it allow you to share your mobile internet connection with other devices such as computers? And how do the other devices connect, through wifi?

The speed increase will definitely be a big help. As for the mobile hotspot feature, the HTC EVO 4G already has that feature while running Android 2.1 if I'm not mistaken. Regardless, the mobile hotspot feature will indeed be amazing for phones that support that, and for people with data plans that can handle it.

I've got a rooted uk milestone on 2.1 and an app called 'wireless tether' and guess what, I can share my 10.7Mbps connection with 8 computers over wifi. its an adhoc connection however, not that I think it makes any difference. the end result is: switch on tether, get pc and scan for wireless networks and click connect. you can filter who uses your connection and who doesn't by clicking a checkbox on the phone. no 2.2 required and from what I understand the droid/milestone are physically incapable of providing a true wifi cloud. again, it doesn't matter as adhoc results in the same thing
