    Ok, before I get a PlayBook on release, there is only one thing stopping me...tethering charges? I would really like to know if there are any before I prepare to get it on the launch date.

    Remember it's also wifi which doesn't cost anything in most places these days, and tethering is only going to be used when you don't have wifi access.

    All along, I thought one of the strong points about the PB was that you could tether it to your BB for internet access. I believed with my unlimited data plan on my phone, I would have instant PB connectivity, without any additional charges.

    Have I been wrong all along?

    I sure hope so. The availability of a Tether app is the deciding factor for me as to whether I buy a PB.

    What happened was I jokingly responded to their recent email about the playbook contest, and special price email they had sent out and said "I'm hoping you'll have a PlayBook version" I NEVER expected a response, but they treated it like a trouble ticket and sent that response, needless to say I was VERY happy!!!!!!

    Just the simple fact that the bridge and the tether are separate, belies (is that the word I want), the fact that the carriers WILL charge for tethering, at leadt most of them will.

    I thought it was the right word, until I looked up the definition (to see if we were spelling it correctly): Belies | Define Belies at Dictionary.com

    Turns out it doesn't quite mean what I thought it did. I always thought it meant "indicates" or "is evidence of"... not the opposite.
