    Do you think the cellular iPad mini will have the personal hotspot feature?
    I'm not sure if it is a limitation/feature of the A5 chip or just a software decision by Apple.

    It's usually a decision made by your cell provider.

    But will it even have the capability?
    I don't believe the cellular iPad 2 does - I might be wrong.

    I know the cellular 'new iPad' does, not sure about the iPad 2.

    ----------

    According to Apples website, if you look at the tech specs of the mini and look under the cellular model and click "Learn more about iPad mini with Wi-Fi + Cellular" it does show it will have hotspot features.
