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.

Or, don't live in the US. That's also an option.

And that fixes this problem:

Android is open (whatever you can stretch the definition of "open" to be) ONLY to carriers and manufacturers so they can do whatever they want with the devices and then lock you out of it
