Microsoft director for WP7 confirms tethering functionality, but carriers will control it
It's great news for those who already made their decision about picking up some sort of Windows Phone 7 handset; especially when it looks like tethering will be available from the onset. Adding more credibility to this functionality out of the box, Microsoft's Director for Windows Phone 7, Brandon Watson, said that tethering will be supported at launch during the Windows Weekly Podcast.

So that's it, right? Owners can start tethering their handsets to their computers without limitations?

Well, the case is not so because Watson said that it will ultimately come down to the carriers whether they'll have it enabled or not. Sure, it's probably a bummer for some people, but it's something that would be expected when we see networks being clogged due to the extensive amount of data being gobbled up by consumers.
