One of the most exciting features about Apple's iPhone OS 3.0 is tethering -- the ability to connect an iPhone to a PC and use it as a modem. At Apple's Worldwide Developer Conference 2009, the company announced that 22 of its mobile-carrier partners in 44 countries will support this feature. Conspicuous in its absence was AT&T. At this time, it looks like American customers rocking the iPhone on AT&T will not be able to take advantage of this excellent feature.
In related news, Apple also announced that 29 carriers will be supporting the MMS (multimedia messaging service) capabilities of iPhone 3.0 at launch (June 17). AT&T, on the other, will be supporting MMS by the end of this summer.
So tell me iPhone customers that are on AT&T: how does this info make you feel? Are you angry? Are you sad? Do you need a hug? If you fall into the third category, I'll send TheFeed's Brian Leahy to your house.
