I am due for a new every two phone on August 9, 2010 and I am going to get the Droid X. I hope that it is released on July 15, 2010 with Froyo (Android 2.2). Google must address OS fragmentation in the many Android based smartphones. I believe if there is a UI overlay, integration of a new version of Android takes time to test all the relationships.

Being a Blackberry RIM Storm 9530 user, I am more than ready to make the switch. The 9530 has been a steady phone which lacks an adequate browser and is difficult to type on and has a crappy dictionary. In short, it has never been that good a phone since inception and now is far behind Android and iPhone technology.

I do like Tether and always use tethering to connect my laptop whenever I travel, or when WiFi is unavailable.

I hope to use Tether's Android software when it is released. I believe Froyo has a tethering option which may make Tether's offering unnecessary. I do not wish to pay Verizon $20/ month to make my phone a hotspot when I can get it for free.

Tether's Android software plans are as clear as mud. I cannot understand if the beta exists or how you get it. I assume that Tether will eventually complete a tethering product worthy of their name for Android. When, I do not know.

You can signup for the Tether for Android beta by visiting the following link:

Froyo will include the ability to Tether but Verizon will be charging monthly for this feature, the Droid X will not be released with Froyo but Android 2.1 with the 2.2 or (Froyo) update coming in November I believe it is.

So initially the Motorola Droid X will have no included ability to Tether what-so-ever, even for those willing to pay the extra monthly tethering fees.

Just to clarify, the Droid X launched with 2.1 and the Verizon 3G hotspot app, which is $20 a month for 2GB. Froyo is promised by "Late Summer" and is rumored to release around august 15th. The Droid 2 uses practically the same hardware and is launching with Froyo on the 23rd, so this isn't unrealistic.

A customer told me the Verizon provided tethering app was not functional currently for them, I am unsure if this is the case for everyone.

Thanks for your corrections.
