According to several reports coming out of the Web 2.0 Summit in San Francisco, AT&T Wireless CEO-AT&T Mobility Ralph de la Vega says customers will "soon" be able to use their iPhone 3Gs as wireless modems for their laptops. That news is based on an interview by TechCrunch's Michael Arrington on Thursday.
There's still no word on how much iPhone 3G users will pay for AT&T's tethering plan, however. Existing users of AT&T smartphones like the BlackBerry pay about $30 for tethering on top of their regular plans. There's no reason to think a similar iPhone tethering plan won't be in the same neighborhood.
In August, Nullriver briefly posted its NetShare app, priced at $9.99, on the App Store, which Apple yanked with little explanation. That app is no longer available on the developer's Web site either.
