I'm a long time Nokia user (currently on an E6) who is now considering the move to Android. I'm almost sold on the HTC One V. I will be buying the phone from a reseller, so no carrier restrictions will be in place.
Before I make the switch I wanted to know if the following are possible via Android apps or those specific to HTC.
- USB and Bluetooth Tethering. Am not interested in WiFi tethering since that is definitely going to be a battery killer.
- Sending and receiving SMS/text message via a desktop app for Windows 7 (over USB and Bluetooth)
Nokia Suite currently handles these two functions quite well. And frankly, these features are a must have for me to switch to Android on my primary phone.
Additionally, I'm not too keen on having to flash the phone with a custom ROM to enable these features.
Thanks for any suggestions!
