samsunginternetsharingIt seems the Internet Sharing firmware update is rolling out to multiple other Windows Phone 7 handsets also.

After the LG Optimus 7 the latest is the Samsung Omnia 7 in Australia, where the handset has received a firmware update to Firmware revision number 2424.11.9.2 and Bootloader version 5.9.0.6 which has enabled WIFI Internet Sharing.

Not all users are however as lucky.  WeLoveWP.hk reports the HTC HD7 has also received a post-Mango firmware update there, but that this failed to bring Internet Sharing or any other new features at all.

Has anyone else’s phone been updated? Let us know in the comments below.

Thanks dgaust and Rage for the tip and Zulu69 for the picture.
