Aaaanyways, basically my Dad has a Torch 9860 on Rogers and we are thinking of getting him one of these new fangled (WiFi only) Kobo tablets for his birthday but I can't find from any documentation if a Rogers 9860 is capable of making a mobile hotspot, which is pretty critical considering he would be using it almost exclusively while travelling around Canada.

Juts to confirm, are you looking for UMA (Rogers TalkSpot/Wi-Fi Calling) or are you looking to have your Blackberry act as a Hotspot (LTEE)?

I know the 9860 is UMA capable, based on the technical specification sheet for the 9860, I believe it is NOT capable of acting as a Wireless HotSpot.
