She is referring to Android phones that can generate an Infrastructure WiFI hotspot (not adhoc).This behave no different from standard wifi routers.

all newer phones or phones that have updated to 2.2 have the ability to become a WiFi hotspot - which does work with the edge

This is the ad-hoc tethering referred to in the original post- which has been thoroughly documented on these forums and elsewhere not to work with the Edge. Am I missing something?
