    I believe it would be possible to share the aircard data connection over wifi to the iPad. You just need to set it up that way on the laptop.

    To add to that. If your wondering about connecting the aircard directly to the iPad. That will not work.

    There are a few wireless routers out there that have a USB port on the back specifically for air cards. The problem with the laptop connection is that it has to be turned on for you to get online.
    And it will be like a taco inside a taco within a Taco Bell that's inside a KFC that's within a mall that's inside your dream! Springboard screwy after reboot? Here is the fix
