    Hi

    New to android and currently working out what phone to get. I'm on WinMo at the moment and use bluetooth tethering (more correctly termed Bluetooth PAN) on a daily basis with a laptop on my commute to work.

    I am reading in various places that Andoid does not support BT PAN? Surely this can't be true, its been on WinMo devices for the past 5 years!

    I'm not interested in WiFi tethering - it consumes too much battery. Bluetooth is the best solution or this having been designed for mobile use, and its 3MBit bandwidth is plenty fast enough.

    So... whats the truth, is BT PAN supported or not?

    Hi

    Thats fairly mad. Its been standard in WinMo for ages, but I'd have to muck about rooting an android phone before I could use it!

    I'm reading that 2.2, FroYo won't support it out of the box either...
