Love the tablet. Need to add tether support for Appworld though. Everything else is useable while using tether for internet stuff but this it seems.

Absolutely! It might be a strategic decision on RIM's part to keep many things WiFi only, but when tethering is so elegantly implemented on a Playbook, and works flawlessly, it`s such a shame not to be able to do as much with it as is possible on WiFi. It also tends to be a major handicap for someone like me who lacks a WiFi network and has to depend on a tethered 3G network for all online purposes.

Very much agree, this is such an odd and seemingly arbitrary limitation. Surely it would make better sense to tell the user "App World may incur large amounts of data transfer, which may cost a lot on a mobile connection. Do you wish to continue?" as a yes/no question, as opposed to the somewhat authoritative "Nope, not gonna happen, find wifi." message that happens now.
My better half keeps running into this issue - and with an unlimited mobile data connection, it really seems like a silly limitation to have... Really hope it gets sorted before PBOS 2.1 is out
