Windows Phone 7 USB Tethering - Will it or won't it?

Richard Dudley has tweeted from an official Microsoft event that a killer feature of Windows Phone 7 is the free USB tethering, an option that costs extra with other smartphone platforms on most carriers, at least in the US.

According to Dudley, "Official Word — Windows Phone 7 will support USB tethering, carriers can NOT charge extra, above the data plan.”

Dudley then tweeted, "Correction to #WP7 tethering--that is not official, may not happen. I misunderstood a discussion. Tweet removed. My apologies."

In the past, Windows Mobile 5/6/6.1 supported tethering through the use of unofficial third-party apps, such as WMWiFiRouter.

If Windows Phone 7 includes USB Tethering, this will be a killer feature, and really get one up on other smartphone platforms. Heres hoping!

How is keeping something we already have (with a user friendly GUI since IIRC 5.0 MSFP but still possible before then) over USB a 'killer feature' exactly?

The unoffical tethering apps were only to enhance the functionality to share over wifi etc. USB internet sharing is a bog standard feature and they are going to consider taking it away? :lol:

W7 seems to be standardising things but seriously restricting its functionality. Are they purposefully trying to alienate their core users to *try* and get a larger market share? Android will wipe the floor with them (tbh it already has). Bye bye WM................

I agree. Loading apps only via the app store? WTF?
