Early reviews of the Nokia Lumia 800 have been generally favourable, but one of the minor criticisms leveled at the Finns’ first Windows Phone 7 device is the lack of tethering goodness.
If that news had your knickers in a twist then untwist them right now, fella, as Nokia has confirmed that tethering action is coming soon.
In a statement to WinRumors, Nokia explained: “Microsoft takes very seriously meeting (and exceeding) the requirements outlined by agencies such as the FCC in the USA.
“They felt it was really important to fully address the concerns raised by recent FCC regulations before enabling this feature and are optimistic they can deliver on these requirements though a software update and are working diligently on that now.”
And what about dual SIM and NFC, Nokia? Any chance either of them will be coming soon? “For features not currently supported by Windows Phone such as NFC or dual SIM we are working with our partner Microsoft to determine the top priorities for future iterations of the platform.”
That all sounds fair enough to me. Everybody happy?
The Nokia Lumia 800 will touch down on November 16, and will be available on PAYG for a tad under £400. As for colours, you’ll only be able to grab the Nokia Lumia 800 in black initially (yawn), but cyan and magenta will follow shortly.
