This in from 9to5Mac:
Poor Jezper got the answer he wasn't hoping for: No from the Jobs himself. Curt, not kind, as per usual:
The question was a good one, and one we've had on our minds as well:
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,

We got the header information below to help prove that this one was legit. Oh, and yes, Jobs is still rocking that 3.1.2 iPhone.
