Carriers Will Be Able To Decide Which Android Phones Have Tethering, And The Price

Google on Thursday officially announced that the newest version of their Android operating system, Froyo, will be featuring tethering and wireless access point functionality.  When people first heard about this, they were ecstatic, but feared that carriers would be able to put a price on it.  Unfortunately, it looks like that’s the case.  Since carriers will have their say, we can expect at least some of them to start charging extra for Android wireless tethering.  

Android is saying that they are giving carriers the option to charge extra for, or disable completely, tethering for respective Android phones on their network.
