Lightbulb If Ad hoc network on Onyx Boox ?? 3G possibilties with iPhone

Is it possible to create a Ad hoc network with Onyx Boox ????

I explain my goal :

I would like to use my 3G connection with my iPhone for the Onyx Boox.

I can do this for my MacbookPro with a wifi network create on Macbook and connect the iPhone with wifi. After that, I use the 3G connection on iPhone for internet use on Macbook.

I would like to do the same for the Onyx Boox : Create a local network with the Onyx Boox (if it's possible !) and use my 3G iphone connection

I don't know if it's clear...

Is it possible ??

Thanks for help.

I haven't done it. But I don't see, why it shouldn't work. You can connect Neo to (pretty much) any Access Point. When defining iPhone as such, there shouldn't be any problem.
Of course, it won't be too much fun. I've only briefly used Neo for checking some bookstores. Just wanted to see, whether it's working to purchase and download ADE content directly on Neo, without PC. It's working flawlessly. But even with WiFi, it's slow. And the display is small and not very responsive. Not Neo's "fault", it's in the nature of ePaper...
I'll probably do what you've described with iPad (WiFi only version).
