    Sure is, as long as you have a tethering plan (through your carrier) for that Android phone. The iPad doesn't care what device is putting out the wifi signal - as long as there is one, it'll work fine.

    I can confirm this works well, tethered to my Samsung SGS2 and my wife's HTC Desire.

    That's great, my mobile is also the Samsung Galaxy S2 so I guess there should be no problems. Thanks for the help

    I have a Samsung Galaxy S. Check your phones under settings/wireless and network, the should an option called Mobile AP, use this to get your iPad to connect to the phone and it's very quick and simple to use.
