The Motorola DROID is scheduled to get a much anticipated update to the Android 2.2 operating system sometime this week. However, one of the features that Android 2.2 users enjoy, mobile hotspot creation, will not be available to original DROID loyalists. Speaking to Engadget, Verizon spokeswoman Brenda Raney said that the first DROID, “doesn’t have [the] hardware to support the mobile hotspot.” What do you think DROID owners?

Also, we’re curious… how many of you currently use a mobile hotspot/tethering on your cell phone?
