I love stirring this pot because it always brings out the fanboi in us.
I’m stunned that the iPhone’s tethering is actually, physical tethering, i.e. it shares its 3G connection over USB.
That’s something BlackBerry has had for years.
Is this true? I can’t find any anecdotal evidence, although I didn’t look very hard. Asking Twitter now.
If true, this is a major win for Android. Wireless tethering to my EVO is one of the top three features I love about it because it means I have internets pretty much everywhere I go.
No extra cost to pay for cafe or hotel wifi, no need to run VPN to avoid baddies.
Other than that bombshell, I completely agree that the iOS notifications are essentially worthless, and the so-called multitasking is crippled.
