Nokia Lumia 800 To Get Internet Sharing Feature

According to a hot new report published by Italian Windows Phone blog Plaffo, Nokia plans to add the Internet share update to Lumia 800 pretty soon.

The optimistic report suggests that Lumia 800 users will officially receive the good news by the end of this month, but considering that we only have a few days until this deadline, we might extend the hope to the next couple of weeks.

The Plaffo report, quoting the user "Alessandro" who probably has inside knowledge of the situation, suggests that during a meeting held last Monday in Milan between the Italian operator H3G and Nokia, the Finnish phone maker has decided to offer Wi-Fi tethering for the Lumia 800 by the end of March.

Apparently, Alessandro works for the Italian subsidiary of Three and is a reliable source who has previously made accurate predictions.

The lack of tethering support for both the Lumia 710 and 800 has spoiled the experience for many of its users, as revealed by the dedicated forums.

However, the Lumia 610 and 900 have both been equipped with the Internet sharing feature, ever since Microsoft announced the update to Windows Phone Mango.

Consequently, it's only a matter of time until all Lumia users will be able to hold a Wi-Fi hotspot in their palms.
