Microsoft´s Joe Belfiore today announced that Internet Sharing or Tethering will be supported on new Windows Phone handsets.
Many of us – especially those who are long-term WP7-users – may think that this is really bad for us. I am waiting also for this features, and told this to Mr. Belfiore:
Here is what he responded:
So let´s hope that all OEM´s will soon update their drivers…[Update] According to the German Site wp7app.de, HTC will publish a firmware update by mid of October, which will enable the mobile Hotspot feature. For Samsung devices exists a workaround to get the Internet Sharing activated – however this is no official way.
So it seems that almost HTC is caring about their existing devices. Good news so far.
