I hope this isn
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 figured teh big drain was the radio transmission on both devices.
I'll go find a mini usb to mini usb cable...
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.
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?
I want to use my phones internet connection with my Google Nexus 7. I can do it with bluetooth but it is slow. How can I do this with usb. I have the cable and my Nexus is rooted.
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.
