TechCrunch Reports That Google Is Adding Tethering to Android 2.2

And in addition to tethering over USB, it’ll let you create small Wi-Fi networks, like a Mi-Fi does. Great features, but, as iPhone users in the U.S. know, “supported by the OS” and “supported by the carrier” are two different things. AT&T doesn’t allow it, and Verizon uses CDMA, so even if they do allow it, you won’t be able to make or receive voice calls while you’re using tethering. (Imagine the pitchforks if AT&T allowed Android phones to tether but still refused to allow it for iPhones.)
