Google Surprising it is not, but unfortunate it remains. Carriers in the United States have started working together with Google to block tethering applications in the Android Market from running on certain Android devices. While this pretty much seems like a US-only thing, it's still bad.

I think it's more like:

Carriers: Help us block these tethering apps like Apple is doing for us or else we'll decrease the Android advertising budget.

Google: Okay.


Oh really? Considering my original iPhone had tethering blocked - by the carrier - then later added as a fee service - by the carrier after complaints to Apple - then later made free - by the carrier after more complaints to Apple - and my current iPhone has four times the original's monthly data limit and has HotSpot enabled, I'd suggest you might just be (yet again) wrong...
