The German ninja at benezblog has leaked the upcoming BlackBerry Desktop Manager which is rumored to be bundled with the BlackBerry Bold 9700 aka the BlackBerry Onyx.
Desktop Manager 18.104.22.168 comes with a new feature that allows you to easily set up your BlackBerry as a modem so you can tether it to your laptop. It seems to be working but some users are having issues connecting. This is leaked software so all the kinks haven’t been worked out. If you’re unable to connect, you may still have to use an existing tethering solution such as TetherBerry.
Included with the rumor is a leaked copy of Desktop Manager 22.214.171.124, which includes the modem feature.
Try it out for yourself. Are you able to tether your laptop and your BlackBerry?
