Had my IPad for a little over amonth now and like it a lot, but it definately does have flaws. I love the operating platform, but I think Apple is missing out on the mobile phone tethering feature here. ATT or no ATT 3G, there shouldn't be issues with tethering to smartphones via bluetooth. If they want a share of Blackberry's business, allow it to tether with Blackberrys and you've found a great business nitch to take some marketshare. Or Apple should just sell a tethering app in ITunes to handle this problem. Even of they charge $150 for it, I think they would find that most people would readily purchase it. Might be another way to draw people in even if they limited it to their IPhones...who knows. But I think this pad is just not being allowed to unlock its potential with today's technologies. Makes it so frustrating purcahsing items like this anymore. I do have a 3G pad, but haven't yet purchased any data usage. Of course Flash is a whole other issue.
