Alternative hotspot

I've a wifi only iPad. When on the move, I use my iPhone to hotspot to my iPad. I'm just wondering if any other phone can do the hotspot like the iPhone. Can a blackberry do the same? Thanks for the advice

The latest mango WP7 update and supported hardware have this feature and I think all android phone have this off the shelves as well.

I believe you jailbreaked your iphone to enable this feature?
