    Prime and USB Internet Stick

    My father-in-law just got his Prime and he`s wondering if there is a way to make his USB internet stick work with the Prime by plugging it directly into the USB on the keyboard dock. The internet stick is made by ZTE and the model is ZTE MF668. I don`t think that it would work but I`m pretty new to Android so I wanted to make sure that I was right. Any ideas?

    Thanks

    To keep the Android OS as light as possible drivers for items such as 3G modems are not included. They are also not readily available.

    Your 2 options are: Tether to a smartphone via Bluetooth or WiFi.

    Get a MiFi (smilar to a 3G internet stick but takes a 3G signal and converts it to WiFi and has a battery for about 3 hours of service). If the 3G stick has a SIM card, you can get a MiFi and pop the SIM in the MiFi if you are eligible for an upgrade.

    would it be that much trouble/ space to add the support for this in the future?

    The issue is ALL of the 3G sticks that are out there. Different manufacturers and models. One of the TF101 ROM's (for rooted devices) have support for about 10 Huwai dongles, but only those specific models.

    If the makers of the 3G sticks thinks there is a large enough market for this, it may happen. With the availability of 3G on some tablets (iPad, 4G Xoom and Galaxy Tab) I would be surprised myself if it ever becomes an option.
