Nexus 7 3G has no tethering options. Is this true?

"Hmm, no tethering options on N7 3G… just needed to tether my laptop via it, annoying!"

Why for the love of everything that's holy?

An Android phone has the function. Damn, even those China knockoffs have it.

Didn't see it mentioned in the Verge review. Is this my imagination or there's something seriously wrong here?
