Android 2.2 comes blessed with USB tethering and Wi-Fi Hotspot functions

Android

As you may know Google are expected to unveil their latest Android OS, the Android 2.2 (a.k.a Froyo) at the Google I/O Developer’s Event next week on May 19-20 in San Francisco. However, ahead of this event, some of its features have already leaked such as integrated Flash 10.1 support and a 450 % performance boost over Android 2.1 Eclair. And today we are happily shaken by the additional info that it will also feature USB Tethering and Wi-Fi Hotspot functions. It translates as the possibility for either a wired-connection with your portable devices including your laptop or a wireless connection with them to internet via your phone’s 3G connection. However, as it is well pointed out, there is obscurity, yet as to whether the carriers will allow Wi-Fi hotspot function or else charge it extra.

    I was planning to get my wife the new HTC Evo 4G from Sprint in the U.S. because it has all the features she is looking for. Unfortunately, Sprint recently announced that on top of the standard data plan there will be an additional $29.95/month charge for adding the hotspot capability (supporting up to 8 devices), in addition to the $10 mandatory surcharge for the Wimax upgrade. Granted, it includes unlimited usage, but it’s still a lot to pay for a phone she’ll only use maybe 2 weeks per month.
