Microsoft says Windows Phone 7 has no tethering after all

Microsoft goes back on Windows Phone 7 tethering

Microsoft today stepped back from its claims that Windows Phone 7 supports tethering. A company spokeswoman told Electronista that statements from Microsoft's own Brandon Watson weren't correct and that the OS wouldn't support tethering in any form on launch. Tethered connection sharing was an eventual goal but wouldn't be ready for October.

The software firm has readily admitted in the past that it considers WP7 a 1.0 release that reboots its entire platform. Copy-and-paste text and full multitasking have also been cut and are only slated to come back in subsequent updates.
