If you have thoughts about iPad tethering with iPhone, then following is the answer from Steve Jobs. A Swedish Apple fan had similar thoughts and he sent an email to Steve Jobs asking whether or not iPad will be able to tether with the iPhone. Email conversion is given below.
Email from Apple Fan:
I’ll keep it short.
I’m Jezper from Sweden, a long time Apple fan, currently about to replace the very last computer at home with a brand spanking new iMac i7. I’m also awaiting the release of the iPad. However, I have one question:
Will the wifi-only version somehow support tethering thru my iPhone?
Two devices, based on the same OS, with already built-in technology to share one data plan suggests a secondary contract could possibly be redundant.
From the look of your keynote, where the iPad sits well between my MacBook Pro and my iPhone, I was hoping the three of them could interact as seamless as possible.
All the best,
Jezper Söderlund[a famous DJ in his own right]
