I received the new 4G iPad today. I changed my laptop connect USB device to the iPad in my account and it's set up for 4G LTE now thanks to Premier support.
Will the iPad eventually be able to serve as a hotspot? It looks like it *might* based on the features listed on the 4G data plan. I know VZW already has the feature on, and I am curious if AT&T will get this going soon as well.
My plan shows this under included features, the "Mob Tethering" is what is peaking my interest in this. Does this mean when they decide to turn the hotspot feature on, it will be included?

I'm very interested in this as well.
AT&T, I hope you're listening and paying attention to the fact that Verizon is including this capability with no additional fees. I would gladly buy the 4G data on a monthly basis as the tethering feature would make it so much more useful. Without tethering, I would only pay for a month's worth of data in the most desperate situations.
