Motorola DROID 2 to get profiles, USB tethering via update

Updated Dec 19th, 2018 6:53PM EST

According to a well connected Android enthusiast with a solid track record, Motorola’s DROID 2 is on the verge of a software update that will bring with it some solid new functionality. While no information is currently available along the lines of a release date for the new OS build, two attractive new features have been revealed. The first is the presence of DROID Pro-like device profiles, allowing the user to easily switch between multiple home screen configurations. The second major change is the presence of USB tethering in addition to wireless tethering. USB tethering allows users to connect to a laptop or desktop computer via USB, and then use their phone’s cellular data connection to connect to the Internet. For the time being, the only other tidbit we have about this forthcoming OS build is also a welcome one: it’s “wicked fast”.
