G1 as a USB tethered 3G modem: Rube Goldberg edition

Googleandroidsdkv09Well, the first Android handset is out and it only took a few short weeks for a tethering solution to appear. I’ve returned my review unit, so I’m unable to test the instructions that appear over on the TMoNews forums. You’ll need to download and install a third-party application first and follow that with the Android SDK on your computer. A little configuration to set up your host device as a proxy server and you should be in business.

Sounds like a complicated solution to me, but then again 3G for no additional charge just might be worth it. As the developer says: this is highly experimental, so if you go this route, you’re on your own. But share the results if you give it a try, ‘k?
