TalkAndroid Contest: Tether Twitter Giveaway

Who doesn’t love a good, easy way to tether? We do, and we’re pretty sure you do, too. Well, lucky for all of us, the good folks over at Tether have released the Android version of their popular tethering app for Blackberry, and it works great. I personally find myself using it constantly on my HTC Evo 4G, and you couldn’t get me to do it any other way.

We love it so much, in fact, that we’ve teamed up with the Tether team to bring you a contest where you can win a copy of Tether absolutely free! The app is always free on the Market, but requires a license code for the full version. So, over the next week, we will be running a contest where 15 lucky readers will get a copy of this great app. Hit the break for the rules, and be sure to let us know what you think in the comments below!
