Could internet tethering be coming to the iPad?

I didn’t buy a 3G iPad because I thought it would be a waste of money. The device would be well worth the price, but the extra dataplan I could do without. I held out hope that I would be able to tether my iPhone to my iPad, which in theory should be possible, considering Rogers has allowed most tethering options.

My plan was crushed the day that Steve Jobs told us that Apple wouldn’t be bringing tethering to the iPad earlier this year, but it seems like there’s a bright light shinning down the tunnel now. iOS 4.2 Beta 2 seems to have some hooks for tethering.

We may see tethering available on the iPad once iOS 4.2 ships in November. It seems like it’s less about sharing the internet from your iPhone, and more about tethering from your 3G iPad to your computer.

I’m still holding out hope for being able to tether my iPhone to my iPad, through legitimate channels.
