Android users, rejoice!

I am deeply in love with the Android OS, not only because of its open source nature (which is a breath of fresh air in comparison to Apple’s cool, but rigid model), but because of the community behind it.  There are about a million and one hacks for android devices (including how to get Android 2.1 before it’s officially released and multitouch), and the hackers have added some new tricks to their bag.  Namely, it’s overclocking (increasing speed beyond intended limit) the Droid Processor to 600 MHz, and the ability for wired or wireless tethering for rooted Nexus One phones.  I wouldn’t recommend these hacks to the average user, as they can decrease stability and require some rather technical know-how, but it’s still pretty cool, yeah?  Click the link to read the official Engadget post.
