Well even if it was possible, it isn't very good idea battery-wise. When 
running as AP battery would run out _very_ quicky since AP mode cannot 
use WLAN power saving and need to communicate a lot. Also the speed of 
WLAN in N800 isn't exactly great. So basically you would get expensive 
and slow access point with touscreen and high resolution display.
