Some guy from Sweden “Jezper Söderlund” wanted to know if the iPad will support tethering thru his iPhone. So he decided to email Steve Jobs to ask him. Steve Jobs also emailed back with a clear answer.
This is the email Jezper Söderlund wrote to Steve Jobs:
“I’ll keep it short.
I’m Jezper from Sweden, a long time Apple fan, currently about to replace the very last computer at home with a brand spanking new iMac i7. I’m also awaiting the release of the iPad. However, I have one question:
Will the wifi-only version somehow support tethering thru my iPhone?
Two devices, based on the same OS, with already built-in technology to share one data plan suggests a secondary contract could possibly be redundant.
From the look of your keynote, where the iPad sits well between my MacBook Pro and my iPhone, I was hoping the three of them could interact as seamless as possible.
All the best,
This is what Steve Jobs wrote back:
