AT&T ‘Evaluating’ Support for iPhone Personal HotSpot

What was almost bigger than iPhone coming to Verizon… Personal Hotspot on an iPhone! Verizon will have it! Well now customers are seeing this as a major difference between the two phones on the two different carriers. AT&T is taking a reserved approch to this feature as they have told Engadget “They are evaluating the feature, but no plans to announce at this time”. One thing we found out earlier today that the iOS 4.3 beta has just brought support for hotspot on the GSM iPhone.
Without iPhone pricing being released on Verizon yet we see AT&T holding ground on changing anything up it currently has until they see what Verizon is going to do with the iPhone. As a heavy data user I see this as a huge selling point and really hope that every carrier and every phone will have this feature in the future. Wouldnt this be great for Wi-Fi iPad users out there that already have AT&T service and an iPhone? What do you think?
