There should be an image here!In another article, we talked about how you can tether your iPhone with the proper tools. Seems that you can do the same thing with the Motorola Droid. Unfortunately, it looks a bit more involved when trying to tether this phone with Ubuntu.

After looking this guide over, it appears to be completely doable. Sadly though, I lack a Droid myself to do any testing with.

My take on this is that I don’t mind a bit of setup being involved initially, but having to rely on a script to start the modem each time is a bit of a buzz kill. That aside, the good news is that a comprehensive tutorial does exist as you can see in the link above. It’s kind of odd, as it seems the more closed off iPhone, is much easier to tether.
