I know that there are other tethering threads, but I wanted to let MR know that Verizon is still offering the Palm Pre Plus - which can serve as a hotspot for 5 devices - for $30. With the required data plan you can wirelessly tether to your iPad and I can report that it works great. The phone itself is actually pretty nice. Not iPhone nice, but still pretty good. I will be getting rid of my iPhone for this arrangement.
