On AT&T iPhone + iOS 4.3 Personal Hotspot coming on Feb 13th – Report

Our biggest wish will be granted soon: Personal Hotspot on AT&T iPhone! David Pogue, in his New York Times review of the Verizon iPhone 4, confirmed that the new Personal Hotspot WiFi sharing feature would come to existing AT&T iPhone users on February 13.

Pogue’s review stated, “the single new feature in Verizon’s iPhone is Personal Hotspot, where the iPhone becomes a Wi-Fi base station. Up to five laptops, iPod Touches or other gadgets can get online, using the phone as a glorified Internet antenna.”

“That’s incredibly convenient. Many other app phones have it - AT&T’s iPhone gets it on Feb. 13 - but Apple’s execution is especially nice. For example, the hot spot shuts itself off 90 seconds after the last laptop disconnects. That’s hugely important, because these personal hot spot features are merciless battery drains.”
Surprisingly, “13th Feb”  date no longer appears in his review. The review now simply states, “AT&T says its iPhone will get it soon” without mentioning a date. We think the confusion came about because AT&T is launching a mobile hotspot app for Andriod on Feb 13th. But that is just a speculation. What do you think? Will iOS 4.3 will be rolled out for public consumption on Sunday 13 February?
