Driving from northeast to FL this Saturday and bought and am taking delivery on my AT&T iPad 4g on the 16th. I'm having serious second thoughts for two main reasons 1. Hotspot capability 2. Verizon superior coverage along i95 corridor in the southeast. As many have pointed out in other threads AT&T has horrible coverage of 3G down i95 from DC to Jacksonville and my wife would like to be able to use her laptop for work on our drive down. All of our iPhones are AT&T so I was thinking I should have gone Verizon to give her service for the drive using my new iPad hotspot feature. The problem 2 problems are 1. neither company has committed to hotspot openly and 2. This means i need to return my AT&T iPad 4g unopened and probably wait a week for Verizon version- I'm not a patient person. So, looking for any of the latest rumors or hopefully soon confirmation regarding what each company is going to do hotspot wise so I know by Friday and before we leave Saturday whether I can open my new iPad or not. Thoughts? News? 700 views and no response? I know this is an important issue to many. I've read the rumor mill websites saying "it looks like a yes from Verizon and an eventually from att".... was just hoping people could use this thread to post new rumors and eventually confirmation of hotspot. In looking over the Verizon orders everything says 2-3 weeks if I order the verizon one now vs just keeping my att one sans hotspot. Guess I screwed the pooch for this trip.
