[LIST] Devices that CAN, CAN'T or HAVE WiFi hotspot support
as we (or some of us) know, Internet Sharing in Mango requires the WiFi chipset to be able to work in AP mode.
I found that OEMs were using two chipsets: Broadcom 4325 (a/b/g, BT, FM) and 4329 (a/b/g/n, BT, FM).
The difference is not just in the missing N in 4325, but also lack of AP mode.
I will be checking today all (most) of the devices that I will get my hands on their ROMs to see, what chipset they have and make list of them here.
