Windows Phone 7: Tethering Support? – Not a chance

We have some surprising and disappointing news to bring you now, as yesterday we told you that tethering support would be an included feature in Windows Phone 7 handsets, but that is actually incorrect according to Microsoft.

As reported from Engadget, we told you how Brandon Watson, Microsoft’s director for WP7 himself said that tethering would be enabled on devices, but it would be up to the carrier on whether it would be an included feature for the users.

Instead Microsoft has now said that Windows Phone 7 handsets will NOT support tethering officially, but as Engadget point out, that doesn’t rule it out from the feature making an appearance in a later build.

Still though, it is a pretty big blow for those of you who got excited at the thought of tethering at launch. Let us know your thoughts on this.
