The version (again, as I understand it) is the release of the intersection of Network Operator approval, Vendor implimentation and Operating System. As at release 7.10.8107.79 the Vodafone HTC Trophy can use Internet Sharing.

That "vendor" there in Android is a big problem - as in things that work in one Android 3.1 device might not work in another device running the same version.

The Apple diagram should add operator as well. And the Nokia one. All of those have some level of operator interference.

"the problem" occurrs in WP7 also, notably the Vodafone HTC Trophy, which did not get Internet Sharing in WP7.5.

I think I should replace Android with AOSP?

Operator Interference, can you quantify if that is political or technical?
