Another interesting tidbit from TechCrunch review this morning...
"...But there’s still no native tethering support and so HTC has provided USB tethering software that’s pre-installed on the phone. Install it on your Windows PC and you can use the Incredible as a 3G broadband modem. We’re thrilled that HTC has made this possible but it seems old fashioned to have to use a cable when Windows Mobile and Palm’s new webOS phones like the Pre Plus can do it wirelessly over Bluetooth or WiFi. Alas, that’s an Android shortcoming..."
As rooted Droid users realize, it's possible to tether the Droid but the more interesting comment is in the first sentence.
If HTC provides tethering support (that is not crippled in the Verizon phones), this raises the whole issue of tethering to a new level. Will Verizon require an additional $30 per month for a "tethered Incredible?" Will all Incredibles be sold only with a tethering plan?
