As some of you know, I’m a big fan of Android and absolutely love my Motorola Droid. I had been a loyal VZW subscriber for years and when they finally got a respectable smart phone (non-Windoze), I jumped at it.
I’ve been absolutely thrilled with my Droid since I picked it up in November ’09. The apps have been steadily improving and the free OS updates have made the phone consistently better. That is until today.
Today I read the following:
The gist is the Motorola Droid won’t have mobile wifi hotspot or tethering support. This is a bunch of garbage since every Droid that has been root’d (hacked and now runs custom firmware) can easily support wifi hotspot and tethering.
Screw the update! I’m rooting my Droid and loading a custom firmware of Android 2.2.
