LG Germany confirms a small update for Internet Sharing is coming

Assuming LG Germany isn't fibbing here, users of the Optimus 7 can expect sometime in the (near) future a small firmware update to enable internet sharing aka tethering. We know the phone's chipset supports the function but since it was a late-added feature to Mango, most OEMs have had only a little time to play with the drivers. Looks like LG though is prepped to enable this for its users, which will involve updating the firmware in a quick and painless fashion.

Lets hope it comes this year.

I knew I picked the right phone. I chose the Optimus 7 from between the HD7 and Omnia 7 originally just for the hardware buttons(and it was cheaper too). Mango added the epicly helpful press-home-button-to-wake and an increase in loudness in digital audio(when I plug in headphones) and now Internet sharing. Yes!

Checked with LG Canada and the response from customer service was:Unfortunately there is no update coming to allow tethering of the Windows 7 phones.

Can confirm I just received the update here in the UK. My phone is technically an unlocked Vodaphone phone, from Germany... So no idea where its actually being rolled out to!
