With the launch of the iPad less than three weeks away on April 3, 2010 for the USA and soon after for Canadians, anticipation for the device has been building.
Yesterday, Apple CEO Steve Jobs was reported to respond to an email inquiring about the ability to tether an iPhone to the WiFi iPad. The benefit to doing this is that users can utilize their iPhone data plan for use on the iPad instead of having to purchase the WiFi+3G iPad.
Unfortunately, the answer to the iPad supporting tethering was a simple “no”, as stated by Jobs.
In other news, Jobs has been busy answering emails regarding the 10 hour battery life claim for the iPad. This particular email expressed disbelief that the iPad could deliver 10 hours of battery life. To these concerns, Jobs has simply replied:
“…yes, we are getting 10 hours in 1.5 pounds.”
The fun fact here, Steve sent the reply from his iPad!
So if you have any important iPad related questions, maybe now is the time to email The Steve.
