iPad cannot tether to the iPhone says Steve Jobs in a response to an email received from an Apple fan from Sweden asking if iPad will be able to tether with the iPhone.
Below is the full email sent to the Steve jobs asking about iPad tethering with iPhone..
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,
