I can confirm this. I'm in an EDGE area this weekend, so I tested by sharing a Wifi connection. Speedtest on the phone gave 4 Mbps down. Sharing over BT gave 89 kbps down. Also, when I ping the phone while connected to the PAN, I get latency around 30-50ms. Latency to google.com using the shared Wifi was around 250ms.
This may not be related, but if you look in the git for the Dream platform, init.trout.rc has this section: (http://android.git.kernel.org/?p=pla...9f8f90;hb=HEAD
64 service hciattach /system/bin/hciattach \
65 -n -s 115200 /dev/ttyMSM0 texas 115200 flow
66 user bluetooth
67 group bluetooth net_bt_admin
I know that hciattach is the BT service, and it appears that its creating a 115k baud serial port. The module we load emulates an ethernet adapter (bnep0), but I'm not sure if this serial device has any relation. Anybody around here know what the deal with this is?
