In today’s time every one of us owns a laptop and one of the greatest features of any laptop is the ability to turn the same device into a Wi-Fi Hotspot. For all those who don’t know the meaning of a Hotspot, it is a site offering internet access through an internet connection over a wireless local area network.
Turning your laptop into a Hotspot means that if you have an internet connection,preferably an Ethernet one then you can share that particular connection with a handful of internet starving laptops through your wi-fi.
This very task could be done on all operating systems including Windows XP, Windows Vista & Windows 7 and there is no need for any software but still we have got plenty of software capable of doing the same. One such very popular software is Connectify and is available for Windows but the interesting part is that the same will be made available for android very soon.
You get me right. Connectify is about to be released for android based devices and will run on version 2.2 and above. With it one could turn a 3G or 4G enabled phone or tablet into a mobile Wi-Fi Hotspot. Other devices including gaming systems, laptops, music systems, smartphones etc will then be able to see your android wi-fi hotspot and can even join them like any other hotspot.
The application is yet to be released for android OS and we bet the day it enters the android market, it will surely become the next most downloaded application. SO stay tuned for more updates on Connectify for android.
