Android 2.2 supports tethering, and one of the "traditional" advantages of Android as a platform is the ease with which it allows tethering. While T-Mobile has a history of being rather tether-friendly, the news has dropped that the G2 may be unable to tether at launch. This is based off of an internal memo leaked to T-Mo News.
Since the G1 tethered just fine (thanks, PDA-Net!) this represents quite a shift for the carrier. They did make an official statement, acknowledging that tethering and WiFi sharing will not be initially supported on the G2, but then stating that they recognize the consumer interest in these features and are working on a solution. Whatever that means.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
