    Talking tether my droid to iPad?

    yeh, yeh i know it's blasphemy to bring up anything apple-related here .

    however, i got an iPad and wondering if it's possible to use my droid to tether in areas lacking in wifi?

    thanks!

    I dont see why not, I can use my Droid to tether to my (now some lucky ebayer's) iTouch, so I dont see why not. If I can get close enough to an iPad on the campus apple store i'll test it myself.

    Be careful it may send Steve Jobs into an apoplectic fit of rage.

    Are you talking about a rooted Droid (where you could become a wifi hotspot) or an unrooted droid where you need a usb hookup (with a program like pdanet)? I am getting an ipad also (that new coming os makes this pretty exciting).

    thanks for the suggestions and comments so far.

    kellex - thanks for the link, unfortunately, the solution you provided requires rooting my droid. i'm not comfortable bricking my droid yet. also, doesn't the ota 2.1 affect any rooting?

    samredman - unrooted but wifi hotspot. i've used pdanet before and i like it but will probably require some type of adaptor for the apple ipod/ipad/iphone connector to mini-usb.

    LordKastle - see y0manda

    there must be a way without rooting the droid.

    *bump* Anyone have more input on this? I'm jealous of my daughter's Palm Pre, which now comes with a WiFi hotspot app. I've used it easily with my iPad. I want a similar solution for my Droid, without rooting...

    But even with cables -- what would I need to use PDANet to tether my Droid to my iPad? Something to mate the USB ends of the different cables together?

    thanks for any help...
