So far details regarding Android 2.2 FroYo’s functionality have been pretty scarce, however a recent screen posted on SlashGear seems to suggest that Android 2.2 can act as a WiFi hotspot as well as offering USB tethering.

If you configure your Android 2.2 device as a WiFi hotspot you are essentially cutting out the need for a device such as a MiFi router, however you will have to check your data plan allowance with your carrier beforehand.
