According to that it does. Settings > Wireless & Networks > Tethering & portable hotspot > USB tethering.

Not sure if your phone can do portable hotspot but it sure looks like it should do USB tethering.

What's amazing is that Little Egypt really does have a crystal ball. I always thought people were being sarcastic, but it's finally been repaired. Wow.

If you want to share your 3G connection with a laptop, then you can use Bluetooth, USB or Wifi.
- Wifi personal hotspot is a fairly new feature for smartphones so some phones may not be running software that supports this.
- Most phones will support USB tethering. This is fairly basic functionality.
- Bluetooth modem is the often forgotten connectivity method. Early versions of Andorid, iOS and WP7 firmware didn't support this.

The much-maligned feature-phones support USB and BT tethering out of the box and have done for years. You should ask yourself whether joining the smartphone bandwagon at the low end and is actually a step forward.
