WiFi-Tethering coming at the end of march to Lumia 800?
One of the clearly missing functions on the current Lumia 800 handsets is the ability to share the internet connection. Nokia although confirmed at this year´s Mobile World Congress they will bring this function on all Lumia 800s.
This is very important to a lot of people. An example: if you have to go by train to work and it takes a good amount of time, you can use this time to be “productive”.
This could change in near future, according to the Italian Windows Phone news site Plaffo.com. They received the information that Nokia is bringing an update to the firmware. It is set to arrive at the end of this month. This information origins from an Italian carrier (H3G) and Nokia Italy. It is still not clear whether this will happen only for Italian devices or globally.
Nokia released a few days ago a firmware update to improve the battery life (1600.2487.8107.12070), which is still not delivered to all devices out there. I am also still waiting for the update to show on my testing Lumia 800.
It seems there are some carriers which do not want their customers to tether their mobile network connection. As soon as we get further information, we will update our blog post.
