Say sayonara to tethering with Windows Phone 7

Say sayonara to tethering with Windows Phone 7
Even though Microsoft's Director of Windows Phone 7, Brandon Watson, uttered words during a weekly podcast that the new mobile platform would indeed have support for tethering, it was unlikely to see wireless carriers approving its functionality. And now after only a day giving some hope to potential users, Microsoft officially came out today on the matter regarding tethering with Windows Phone 7.

Apparently a Microsoft spokesperson said that Watson misspoke during the podcast and that “Windows Phone 7 does not support tethering.” With such a strong and bold statement, now it pretty much seals the cover on the coffin for tethering. Sure there are going to be some people bummed out about it, but it's obviously not a high priority thing for Microsoft right now – but maybe down the road it'll be implemented with future updates.
