June 15, 2010 - Written By Chris Yackulic

If you are a fan of Android and of Tether, then the latest news from them may just be what you are waiting for. The company has announced that they have finally released the public beta of their Android version. Many people who have used it before have been waiting on this since it was announced a while back in limited form. Those who have never used it should know that Tether offers a paid tethering app for mobile phones. They claim that it has demonstrated speeds up to 40% faster than their competition on Android, though that is kind of vague. Many people have used it on BlackBerry and thus have a license for the application prompting this statement from Tether:

The number one question we’ve been asked is will existing customers need to purchase a new Android license.  Our team has decided, after much debate, that existing Tether customers will be able to get the Android version with a huge discount. The pricing will also be different than our current BlackBerry solution, for a number of business reasons.  Keep in mind that your Android version will be transferable to any other Android, should you upgrade, change or lose your phone in the future for no cost.  Exactly how our BlackBerry version currently operates.

But for now the Android Beta is available at no cost until we officially launch it.

So if you want to check out Tether for free go sign up for your free trial.
