Welcome to the BlackBerry Support Community Forums.
Thanks for the question.
BlackBerry Desktop Software will only detect BlackBerry smartphones and BlackBerry PlayBook tablets. Also tethering is only supported on PC and Macs. The Mobile Hotspot feature is available for BlackBerry smartphones running 7.1 and higher.
Let me know if you have any more questions.
