In an interview at the Web 2.0 Summit, AT&T Mobility CEO Ralph De La Vega said that an official, AT&T-sanctioned solution for using the iPhone 3G as a modem for a laptop is coming “soon.” In early August, Apple pulled the tethering application NetShare from the App Store, most likely because AT&T has up until now not supported tethering on its iPhone data plans. It is currently unknown whether AT&T will charge users extra for tethering ability, and whether software allowing such use will be built-in to a future version of the iPhone’s software or released as a separate application via the App Store.
