Tether Celebrating Anniversary With Smartphone and App Giveaway

83 Comments

Tether are celebrating their 1 year anniversary providing BlackBerry users with a simple means of tethering their BlackBerry to their laptop. Incredibly, the company are announcing they have been installed on 110,000 BlackBerrys. While tethering can be done with a few good Google searches, many users love the ease and convenience that Tether provides.

To celebrate their big day, Tether are offering BlackBerryCool readers 25 copies of Tether. To win, just leave a comment with your email, Twitter or Facebook so we can get in touch with you.

In addition, Tether are offering 6 smartphones (3 BlackBerry and 3 Android) at their site.

Tether also took the opportunity to promote the BlackBerry platform’s openness, and specifically called out Apple on being a closed environment:

Together, we need to encourage more development on open environments like BlackBerrys’. Right now the big hype is around iPhone, but there is so much noise. Closed systems like the App Store, aren’t good for the mobile industry. Could you imagine if Microsoft had an approval process for all Windows programs? The BlackBerry platform is a little harder to develop on, but the potential is here and we need to encourage development.

Hear, hear! RIM understand the value in keeping an open market where companies such as Google are free to offer valuable and affordable services to users.
