    Just got an iPad. It's synched to my exchange office email/calendar. Awesome. A friend has his tethered to his 3g iphone for mobro. Is there any app that allows tethering without root access?

    If not, I'm not very technical, so does anyone in the bay area want to help me root my nexus one?

    Unless you can tether via bluetooth with the iPad, you have to root it. Wireless tether requires root as far as I know. However rooting it isn't that hard. Lol.

    No. You have to root and install Wireless Tether app. It's not too hard really. I have no experience (though I did jailbreak my iPhone) and rooted and installed the app in a few hours. Definitely worth it.

    I tether my iPad to my Nexus. It's awesome. Rooted my Nexus for that sole reason. I'm actually posting from my iPad right now.

    Here's a really roundabout way of doing it, without root access, using your laptop.

    You do need to have Windows 7 though...

    Tether your N1 to your laptop via PDAnet.

    Turn your laptop into a hotspot using Connectify:

    Connectify - Turn your Windows 7 laptop into a Wi-Fi Hotspot

    That's about the only way I can think of doing this without root access :(

    If you want to convert your android phone into a mobile hotspot, you will need froyo and a free app called Hotspot Widget..

    Included in Froyo is Wifi Hotspot, the Widget creates a handy on off switch from the phones desktop..

    Mobile Hotspot compatible with all Iphones/Ipads/Ipod touchs/PS3 etc...

    Speeds depends on your data plan, I use Vodafone Spain (1gb bandwidth 3mbps + drops to 128kbps) more than enough for email and basic surfing.

    I'm confused, there is a setting to make the N1 a mini WiFi hotspot. This doesn't need rooting it's built in. Why does this not work?

    This thread was pre-Froyo, hence no tethering feature.

    yeah I was just at the Apple store a couple days ago and connected an iPad to my Nexus...Apple genius didn't seem to like it too much. :D

    I'm just waiting to see what the new iPads look like before grabbing a wifi only version. I'm not an Apple traitor...I just prefer the build quality of the iPad to any other tablet i've seen so far.
