Android Phones 2.2 Will Tether To Act As WiFi Hotspot [pcworld.com]
Details of the next version of the Android mobile operating system (2.2) are surfacing in advance of the official launch later this month, despite Google's efforts to keep things under wraps.

Phones running Android 2.2 will be able to tether via USB and act as a Wi-Fi hotspot for other Wi-Fi enabled devices, according to TechCrunch. The blog shows screenshots of the FroYo interface, where users can u their Android smartphone to act as a modem, and also share the phone's Internet connection with other devices via Wi-Fi.
