Now that Apple has a commitment from ATT for data pricing packages for the iPad, could the ability to tether an iPhone to a laptop work as well? It seems that this was a popular feature advertised quite some time ago that was a big deal at one time, but I have not heard much mention of it lately. If so, could this compete with the iPad if you have a 3Gs iPhone and an Apple laptop? I guess the next step would be the ability to load apps on a laptop. What ever happened to tethering anyway?
