Tether JB iPhone to New iPad, save $130?
Couldn't one just use a JB tethering app like MyWi on the iPhone, and connect to that shared data connection with the new iPad's Wifi?
Am I missing something or would that save lots of $$: both the $130 price jump for 3G enabled iPads, PLUS the 15 or 30$/mo iPad data package???

* backgrounder (and proswitcher, man that would be sweet on such a big screen)
Ok theres are apps but very useful none the less.
The trouble is i think that apple have learnt a lot now and as the latest build of the 3gs remains as a tethered jailbreak i doubt in this even newer hardware it would be possible.
We'll have to wait and see what the geniuses at the dev team and mr hotz can come up with.

I just meant in the context of this topic which was going on with the WiFi iPad via a jailbroken iPhone. There's no reason you can't do that even without jailbreaking the iPad.
A successful non-tethered jailbreak with backgrounder will probably be the one requirement to me getting the iPad. I just can't see using this thing without it. Either that or Apple needs to build in the functionality which I REALLY HOPE they eventually will.
Really that *IS* the only 'limitation' of the iPad that will keep me from getting it. Solve background tasks and I'm sold. There are other missing/limitations that I'll whine about (just as I have with iPhone,) but nothing I can't live without.

But it's got some new features and capabilities, so maybe some new loopholes to exploit?
I also wonder if perhaps Apple won't care as much about JB, since it's already unlocked? I think a lot of the reason to keep the iPhone closed was contractual obligation with AT&T.
The ipad won't need a jailbreak to tether to a jailbroken iPhone with Mywi, however.
As long as I've got my jailbroken iPhone, I can handle a non-JB iPad. It'll be mostly an email/web device for me.
