In fact, despite some recent rumors on sites like MacRumors, which show a tethering option in the latest iPhone OS 4 beta, an AT&T spokesman said yesterday the company had "nothing new" to share on the subject of iPhone tethering.
Boo! Hiss! Come on, guys, this is ridiculous. It's sad enough the iPhone doesn't support Wi-Fi syncing, a feature Microsoft's Zune player has had for three years. Tethering is easily do-able, and, done right (like on the Palm Pre), it's awesome.
All this gets me a-wondering: How important is this to you? Is tethering capability a crucial consideration when choosing a phone? Or is it not something you really care about? Vote in our poll! Then tether yourself to the comments page and join the discussion.
