Default USB Modem

I know the Bb can be used as a WLAN modem, using its GPRS/EDGE/EV-DO whatever connection through the usb for a laptop to connect to the internet but is there any way to connect a palm to a Bb and do the same, so I can browse pages on the bigger screen of my palm but using my BBs data service. I know theres no bluetooth data so thats out the window but surely as the palm can be setup as a usb host by some apps then a modified cable and a small app should allow this right? Anyone got any ideas where to start?

You can't connect the BB to the Treo to use it to host an internet signal because there's no interface between them. When you use the BB as a modem, Windows has the software interface to link Windows with the BB. I've never heard of a program to link the BB and Treo not to mention, I don't think either company would want that.
