Default USB Tether Phone to Tablet?

I hope this isnít covered anywhere else, I consulted my friend, Google and didnít find but this.

USB tether btw Tablet and Phone

USB Tethering discussion (updated)



I want to tether my Galaxy Tab to my phone using usb.

I have wifi tethering but that eats up battery for both devices. Iíd rather use something without wifi or Bluetooth.

Can I tether my tablet to the phone using a usb cable?

You should be able to tether it with usb but i'm not sure it's going to save you that much battery life.

I'm sure the radio is prob a bigger drain but I don't think the usb would be that much less. Interested to see what you find out.

Default Tether HTC sprint phone to android tablet

I have been searching, with no avail, on how to tether my HTC EVO to my new android tablet. I have tried the pdanet tablet, but my tablet does not have bluetooth. It does have Android 4.0. Since it is an HTC, I can't use foxfire non-bluetooth, right?

Right after I got my new Nexus 7, I tried to USB tether from my Rezound (unrooted), and it didn't work. I just tried it again, and it connects. Maps (for one) complains that it doesn't have a data connection, but it goes ahead and works.

But it's slow. The connection tests out at 600kbits/sec. Using BT, the speed is more like 700k.

Never mind. My test was faulty. Despite telling PDAnet to tether in USB mode, the Rezound and the tablet were setting up a bluetooth connection. On the plus side, tonight's tests of the resulting bluetooth connection yielded much better speeds, around 1400-1600kbits/sec.
