Can I Connect an iPad to Blackberry Bold 9000

Hi - I am thinking of purchasing an Apple iPad.  At home I have BT Total Broadband so using a WiFi connection, I will have no issues connecting the iPad to the internet.


If I am out and about - and I am not near a WiFi hotspot - can I connect to the internet through my Blackberry Bold 9000?  If so, how would I do this?  What would be the settings?

That would be dependent on the iPad software, but I don't think so.


The BlackBerry can be used as a tethered modem, but the iPad would have be running the Blackberry Desktop Software for Mac, and I don't think that is available for the iPad.
