    With sales projections of anywhere between 3-10 million Ipads in the near future, most of which will be wi-fi, it seems there is an opportunity for really enhanced tethering. With poor 3G network delivery by AT&T, I wonder if Verizon, with 90 million customers in the US, will become very aggressive with new mifi capable phones, like the HTO. If they offer flexible and competitive pricing for tethering, they might steal a bunch of AT&T customers.

    Yeah, someone needs to jump on that. But due to the lousy digital infrastructure in the United States, it may be some time before the big players will be convinced it's a profitable idea.
