Back in February, Sprint removed "Phone as Modem" aka tethering from their Pre's Technical Specs. And that's when we all think the Pre will not support tethering. But guess what? Jim, the Pre beta tester, has came out and say that tethering works on the Pre! Not only that, he said the Pre with a 2 year contract will be $299. Which will be a great price point to compete with the iPhone 3G and maybe the next iPhone.
Jim's own tweets:
"It tethers, tho I'm going 2 try a BT hookup instead... "
'Pre linked right up with FiOS Wi-Fi, but doesn't seem 2like Presario' s BT adapter...Cam's ok, but I'm spoiled by 8mb res Canon #Palm Pre'
'BTW - heard frm source (not Sprint) that Pre price tag 2 be $299 with 2 year ctrct...bet it's $100 or so after all the hype wears off"
He is turning out to be a great source for new Palm Pre bits! Gotta love the power of Twitter!
