Windows Phone “Mango” to Have Hotspot/Tethering & Front-Camera Support

One of the features that was in Windows Mobile but missing in Windows Phone was the ability to tether another device to share the phone’s 3G wireless data service. WPCentral reports that this much needed feature is returns with the upcoming Windows Phone 7.5 “Mango” update.

Mango supports Internet Sharing/Mobile Hot Spot feature

The question is which carriers, if any, will allow this feature to be enabled and how much they will charge for tethering.

Earlier today, I reported that the first announced Windows Phone Mango device does not have a front-facing camera for video chats. None of the first generation Windows Phone devices have a front-facing camera, either.
