Android 2.2 Embraces Tethering

Ainsley Jones

Details of Android 2.2, code-named Froyo, have surfaced ahead of the operating system's official launch later this month. Handsets operating Android 2.2 will be able to tether via USB and act as a Wi-Fi hotspot for other Wi-Fi devices, according to TechCrunch.


CNNMoney reports that it is likely that carriers will have control over how the tethering is used. Android 2.2 will also feature support for Adobe Flash 10.1. The rest of Android's bells and whistles are expected to be unveiled at Google's I/O event in San Francisco on May 19, says Recombu.
