Verizon Spins Reality

Look Mom, no tethering for Droid users:

Motorola Droid users better not get too excited by Android 2.2, also known as “Froyo.” While Verizon Wireless is set to push out the latest version of the Android operating system to Droid users starting this week, two key features will be missing: tethering and Wi-Fi hot spot capability. Verizon says the Droid won’t get these two features, which are built into the Android 2.2 OS, because the device’s hardware isn’t capable of supporting it.

AT&T sed to spin similar stories about the iPhone; now they just throw bandwidth limits at us. Verizon will probably go through the same BS progression.
