This method will allow you to tether your tablet to your phone using bluetooth. This has apparently been available for a while now but just not noticed. There is no need to root your phone to use this method that we can see. We have tested this on the wifi Motorola Xoom with the Motorola Atrix. While our Atrix is rooted we don’t see anything that would require it.
Sync your phone with your Tablet
Go to the Bluetooth settings on your Xoom (settings -> wireless and networks ->bluetooth settings ->paired devices -> choose your phone)
click the wrench icon
select the tethering option (who would have thought)
Enjoy your tethered Xoom
We have of course only tested this with our Atrix and heard it works on the Droid X (both rooted) so if anyone has other phones rooted or not please let us know how this works for you.
Please take note that to use Barnacle you must be able to give it Root Access.
Don’t want to pay for tethering on your android phone through you carrier? Well there is a FREE app for android devices that can achieve this for you. Not only can you tether your phone to your laptop, tablet and any other device but you can setup security and its a simple 1 click run.
