    I currently have a iPhone but have been considering switching to an Android phone such as a Motorola Droid. Also, I am looking at a tablet soon and if I stay with the iPhone would get an iPad but if I switch to Android will be getting an Android tablet.
    One problem I have with the iPhone OS is it won't allow for multiple users to log in to have their own apps, settings, etc. Another and the largest is parental controls. I want to for example be able to block certain websites such as myspace, facebook, etc.
    The iPhone OS can't do any of the above. Does Android do any of the above? I realize these capabilities may not be available on a phone but will Android support these on a tablet?
    I know many tablets are just being released but I like the fact some will have USB where the iPad doesn't.
    Also, does Android allow multitasking like iPhone OS 4.0 will allow?
    One other question, is tethering going to be offered on any tablets? I'd like to be able to have a phone such as the Motorola Droid and be able to use that to tether with an Android Tablet so I don't need two data plans.
    I'm very new to learning about Android. Thank you for your help and suggestions.


  2. 1-andoid for tablets is no different than mobile version.
    2-teathering is not a standrad feature ,you get this capability through 3rd party apps eg.,PDAnet .
    3-i'm not sure about parental control.
    4-what you get for mobile is what you get for tablets.
    5-android from day one has been a multitasker.

    Iphone OS 4 still doesn't have real multitasking, Android does. I haven't seen a
    ny support for parental controls or multiuser support that would work for what you wanted to do.
