    I'd like to know if its being tethered via Bluetooth or Wifi. I'd assume bluetooth. I don't know how the iPad would know if the wifi hotspot was from an iPhone or not.

    FYI. It uses the same icon when tethering with MyWi ( jail broken).

    Yeah it's integrated across Lion and iOS5+. It's really annoying because the iPad knows it's tethered using a 3G connection, and therefore restricts BBC iPlayer still (oddly 4OD and AppStore restriction disappears).

    Only one iPad will run you $800. The cheapest one is for almost half of that.

    Depends on what you're wanting to do. The iPad does most things just fine and is plenty lighter and more portable than any laptop or netbook.

    I think the iPad to iPhone gets the link symbol since they iPhone is sharing GPS info with the iPad in addition to the WIFI goodness. Take a look at maps when linked, it gets much more accurate.
