Google After countless rumours, leaked screenshots, and what not, Google has officially unveiled Android 2.3, dubbed Gingerbread, today. Accompanying the release of this new Android version is the Nexus S, a Samsung-made successor to HTC's Nexus One, which delivers the pure Google experience - unlocked, without additional crap.

If I am not mistaken, BlueTooth takes less power than wi-fi tethering. So it really escapes my mind, what is so special on wi-fi tethering, when my HTC TouchPro 2 has a BlueTooth one, and it works really well to share my Internet connection. How can Android miss on that one?

The interesting thing is that it works like a WiFi router, and that you can connect multiple devices simultanously, regardless if you have bluetooth or not.
So it's a little more than normal tethering.
