Windows Phone 7 will have the ability to tether

Updated Dec 19th, 2018 6:49PM EST

At launch, Windows Phone 7 won’t be able to copy and paste, but it will be able to tether. According to Brandon Watson, Director of Windows Phone 7, Microsoft’s next mobile operating system will have the ability to provide your computer with cellular data connectivity, assuming your carrier allows it. The tip was dropped during a radio interview on the TWiT podcast Windows Weekly. Great news for those who would like a Windows Phone 7 device and rely on tethering. Now… which carriers do we think will support it?

UPDATE: Windows Phone 7 will not support tethering. See update here.]
