And it won't work with the iPhone/iPad combo, since wifi tethering isn't possible with an unhacked iPhone. Only Bluetooth or USB tethering is possible under AT&T's new option.
One can jailbreak their phone and use a program called MyWi to tether using wifi. Otherwise, to stay legit, I suppose I could add tethering for another $20 or so per month, tether my laptop, and use it as a wifi hotspot for the iPad instead. Not exactly practical in my case, but it might work for some.
