Windows 7 Phone will not have tethering at launch Microsoft has said this weekend that its upcoming Windows Phone 7 will not support tethering.
The new statement directly contradicts the past statement from the Brandon Watson, the Director for Windows Phone 7.

In May, Watson said the ability would be enabled from launch.

Microsoft has promised that tethered connection sharing will be a reality eventually, but not in October when the first phones hit the market.

Tethering, along with copy/paste and full multitasking have all been stripped from the 1.0 software release, but will make comebacks in future firmware updates.

Copyright infringement is nothing more than civil disobedience to a bad set of laws. Lets renegotiate them.
