Droid vs. Droid X vs. Droid Incredible Android 2.2 Features

Droid Lacks Tethering, Hotspot Support With Froyo Update

The original Motorola Droid will be getting the much-anticipated Android 2.2 (Froyo) update this week, but it will be missing two key components: hotspot and tethering capabilities. While the Droid X and Droid Incredible handsets are already enjoying the benefits of tethering, according to a Motorola spokesperson, the Droid "doesn't have the hardware to support a mobile hotspot" and won't be getting the app, which is needed for tethering.

There are many reasons to love the Droid (even though Motorola seems to think it's not for girls), but I'm betting that a lot of Android fans will be trading up for the new Droid X or the upcoming Droid 2, which come packed with more than enough features to draw a wondering eye.
