Are Profiles and tethering coming to the Motorola Droid 2?

Minor Android legend (or major Android celebrity) p3droid has posted some interesting screenshots from a new OS update reportedly for the Motorola Droid 2.  First, it looks like the Droid 2 is getting Profiles similar to what we see on the Droid Pro.  These will allow you to quickly and easily switch between different homescreen setups as you move through the day.

Another welcome addition is the ability to tether your phone's internet connection to your computer via USB.  HotSpot capability is nice, but choice is always a good thing, right?

P3droid also mentioned that the new update is "wicked fast," so it's more than just an eye candy update.  Any Droid 2 users excited about getting profiles on their device? [Via MyDroidWorld]

  • This looks nice and all, but I just want MOTO to dedicate resources toward fixing corporate email before rolling out this non-essential functionality.
  • I look forward to basically all updates! Haha~ Mine D2 is quite fast, but more speed is always a good thing. Profiles will be great too!!!
  • Digging the bengals logo for the weekend profile. To bad they aren't any good this year.
  • But a true fan is one that, regardless of record, sticks by his team.
  • exciting! Is there an eta on the update?
  • Would these different profiles also change your sound settings, like on the BlackBerry?
  • I just hope the Droid x follows tethering support, wiring is nice but I notice increased browsing speed from tethering
  • As a heads up, I've seen the same video where this screen comes from and its coming installed on the D2 Global, not sure if will be updated back to original D2
  • Who Dey!
