Tether, a company many of us are familiar with, announced today that they have finally released their Android beta to the public. For many this news is warmly welcomed, since the beta that was announced a while back was limited and not everyone got to get in on it. If you are not familiar with Tether, they are a company that offers a paid tethering application which on the Android has seen speeds around 40 percent higher then their competition offers. Many of you that are converting to Android from BlackBerry may already have a license for this application, and Tether has provided a statement about transferring these license's and how they will handle these customers.

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, what are you waiting for? Head over to Tether and sign up for your free trial of the application now!
