When Nokia previously announced that WiFi tethering was coming to their Lumia 610, a very entry-level handset for the Asian market, it was baffling that the higher-end handsets (namely the Lumia 800 and Lumia 710) would not be getting the update with Mango (Windows Phone 7.5). After all, Microsoft made WiFi tethering a big part of the Mango update.
Today On Friday, Nokia has made it official – tethering is coming to the entire line up of Lumia handsets; from the budget friendly Lumia 610 up to the flagship Lumia 900. Below is a screen capture of their response from Nokia Connects:
If the lack of tethering has been a deal breaker for you, rest assured that by the time the Lumia 900 is released, you’ll have one less reason to look to the other platforms for your mobile OS needs.
