cando U think ipad can do internet tethering w iphone?
 
Do ur think the new iPAD will be able to do internet tethering thru iphone? if yes then I'll go for the non-3G ipad so that i only need one 3G data sim card on my iphone. But a bit doubtful knowing that its not a full mac OS.

anyone found anything on this?:)

Get a cheap symbian phone and use joikuspot :) its a good alternative solution

i would think that getting the 3G version will be better, becos i have tested using the e71 with jokuspot (Forget the spelling) to create a wireless connection for my ipod touch and i found out that surfing is super slow, while my e71 gets super hot too. Not to mention battery is draining like nobody business.

I am certain it would not be any issue i reckon.

Nobody knows for sure whether it can do tethering until the 3G version comes out.

But why will you carry a big size iPad just to do tethering with your laptop? A mobile broadband stick will suffice or you can use the Wireless@SG.

iPad supposed to change the user experience without people carry heavy laptops...just iPad will do.

as of my knowledge, iPad is using the same OS as iPhone. so logically you cant tether your iphone with another iphone or ipod. besides, i dont think iPad has USB ports.

siron 15-02-2010 09:26 PM

Tether using bluetooth?

i love to get an ipad coz its easy to carry around when i travel. Eventhough i am currently using macbook air, but i think ipad will be better and the price is justified. The problem is i have USB modem unlimited from starhub and this ipad is without USB port. Unless they have 3rd party connector on it

Ask Starhub to get you a MicroSIM card and simply buy the 3G-enabled iPad.

apple sells a accessory that allows you to connect a usb cable, buts meant for transfering of photos from a camera, not sure if it can tether too.

was planning to get the wifi version + mifi 3g router.
can share 3G access with ipad, macbook.

urbanturban 16-02-2010 06:15 PM

Mifi is the way to go. Do not want another SIM card.
