Official support for tethering is still one feature conspicuous by its absence from the Palm Pre's abilities, and the last we heard Palm were cautioning tweakers not to unofficially enable it lest Sprint get upset.  If, though, the promise of sharing all that EVDO Rev.A goodness is just too good to miss, and you fancy some MiFi-style WiFi hotspot action, then homebrew app My Tether is the answer.
