The news will sure come as a letdown to many but we really can’t blame Google for complying. Turns out T-Mobile, the only operator actually selling an Android smartphone in the United States, expressly forbids tethering phones to a computer. This, on the other hand, does come as quite a surprise given that T-Mobile’s CTO Cole Brodman specifically said last year they wouldn’t lock down Android or update it to break tethering applications. Users outside the T-Mobile US network would still have access to these applications.
