Report says Samsung Omnia W to get Wi-Fi tethering with Windows Phone 7.8
According to the Korean based manufacturer, once the Windows Phone 7.8 update goes through, Samsung will add the new feature to the device. The big question, of course, is when will the Windows Phone 7.8 update be pushed out? Samsung says that it is just a matter of Microsoft flicking the switch to send out the long awaited update.

I think you should ask this question in an Windows Phone fan web page, they should provide more information than you will get on PhoneArena. :)

Yeah Samsung is a bit tricky since they have updated only for their Korean version but not the international one.. Lucky you if they are updating Omnia W now, and bad luck for us who own Omnia II..
