On it's community blog, Wind Mobile has announced that Wind BlackBerry Bold 9700 customers can now tether and stream with their smartphones.

Tethering gives Blackberrry users who subscribe to Wind's Infinite Blackberry data plan, the ability to use their smartphone as a modem for their laptops.

Wind says other BlackBerry customers can also tether their phones, but will be charged the pay-per-use data rate.

Bold 9700 owners can tether by using a USB cable or via a Bluetooth Connection, however, Wind recommends using the USB cable as connection speeds are considerably faster and it’s generally easier to set-up and use. Details on how to tether can be found here .
