USB & WiFi Tethering Built Into Android 2.2
As we head into next week’s Google I/O, Android 2.2 is looking more and more like a game changing release. First there’s Flash integration. Then came Android Market changes. Just earlier this week we learned that Froyo is ridiculous fast. Does it get better? You bet.
Take a look at those pictures up there. This is the latest piece of the awesome puzzle that is taking the fight right at Apple and RIM. As it appears, Android 2.2 (Froyo) will offer WiFi and USB-based tethering as part of the operating system.
With data speeds getting faster by the day, more and more users are wanting to tether a netbook or laptop to their phone. Building it directly into the operating system would provide yet another selling feature in an already powerful and robust platform.
Sadly, this seems like the first thing carriers might look to disable. Thankfully, rooting Android handsets is rather easy!
