tethering phone to tablet

My phone contract is shortly coming to an end. I have recently acquired a Windows 8 hybrid laptop/tablet. My current phone is a Samsung Galaxy S1 of which I am very fond so don't mind keeping it. However Samsung Kies is an awful piece of software. It really mucked up my laptop when i tried to download the latest version so that I could update the firmware on my old phone with a view to hopefully tethering to my tablet. [tethering worked with my old laptop on Vista] I had to uninstall Kies to get my laptop to work again as it was in hibeernation mode all the time.
Would it be easier to get a Windows 8 phone like nokia 820 to be able to tether easily?

I used to tether ok with my old Galaxy 1. Agree entire about Kies which is why I now have an iPhone.
Most modern phones (Android, iOS, Windows) are quite capable of tethering but some mobile operators block it. No need to get a W8 phone just for tethering.
