Uh-oh. PhoneScoop just got word from Verizon that the original Motorola Droid will not have Wifi tethering or USB tethering when the Froyo update hits this week. Verizon's explanation is that the Droid doesn't have a "WI-FI transmitter" and that there is "no connection on the PC side" given as the reason for a lack of USB tethering.
Looks like pdaNet and the other tethering options on the Market just got a lot more attractive to Droid owners. [PhoneScoop]
