Default easy tether to android pad

Hi guy I have a verizon android phone and use easytether to connect to my note book which is WINDOWS based. I just got the new acer ion tablet running on honeycomb android. Has any one come up with a way to tether these two . I will be in a lot of wifi places but when i am not I would like to connect through the phone mobile hotspot is out as I don't want to root my phone and it cost another 30 buck a month from verizon. I love this stuff just born a little to early. But for 68 years old i am plotting along Thanks to anyone that can anwser my question.

Yeah it depends on what phone you have. If you have the first Motorola Droid it will not work.
