WP7 devices to allow USB tethering right out of the box

WP7 devices to allow USB tethering right out of the box
Most carriers now charge if you want to use tethering on your smartphone. It's either their way, or you have to jailbreak, root, and download and install additional software to unlock USB tethering.

If a twitted confirmation is to be believed, Windows Phone 7 devices will allow Internet oozing though their internals to a PC near you, without any of those shenanigans. Richard Dudley, a WP7 developer has posted the official word on Twitter after attending a FireStarter event organized by Microsoft.

Well, we might not have copy and paste from the start, but at least their heart is in the right place regarding this annoying tethering charge carriers are trying to get away with.
