One of the many Apple fans from Sweden sent an email to Steve Jobs this week, asking about whether or not iPad will be able to tether with the iPhone? The full email which was sent is as follows.
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]
Jobs’, in his usual style replied to the email, saying..
Sent from my iPhone
So that pretty much settles this issue. iPad will NOT be able to tether with the iPhone.
Yesterday, Apple announced the official release dates for the much hyped iPad. The WiFi models of iPad will be available on retail starting from 3rd April. And with the pre-orders starting from next week on March 12th, will you be the first one in line to get it? [via 9to5Mac]
