We're getting word that users in Australia on the Optus Network who are using Samsung Omnia 7's are getting a software update that brings WiFi tethering to their devices.

Reader Sri lets us know that his firmware, radio and even bootloader were all just updated, meaning there could also be a few other tweaks on board that add some features:

Firmware Revision - 2424.11.9.2 (from 11.8.2)

Radio Software - 2424.11.9.1 (from 11.7.2)

Bootloader Version - 5.9.0.6 (from 5.8.0.8)

What makes this interesting is the HD7, also in Australia, received an update but no word on if that brought tehtering to the table.
