For many business users hoping to move from Windows Mobile to Windows Phone 7, being able to tether their phone is one of the non-negotiable.
Now there appears to be some hope, with Richard Dudley, a developer and ComponentOne Evangelist claiming to have had official word that Windows Phone 7 will in fact support USB tethering, and that this will not cost anything beyond the basic data plan.
Richard had just been attending a FireStarter event hosted by Microsoft, which is presumably where the information originates.
Tethering has been rumoured before for Windows Phone 7, with Australian carrier Telstra specifically saying it was a feature they desired in the new OS.
