Next version of iPhone OS expected to have personal hotspot capability

Boy Genius Report (BGR) is reporting that the personal hotspot feature debuting on the Verizon Wireless (NYSE:VZ) iPhone will arrive on iPhones with iOS 4.3 in the future. Citing an unnamed source, BGR said technical acceptance of the feature is planned for March. It's unclear whether AT&T Mobility (NYSE:T)  would support such a feature but has introduced the service on other phones. Verizon has yet to announce pricing for the iPhone's personal hotspot service, but it currently charges $20 per month for 2GB on WiFi connections via Android devices and through USB and MiFi modems on laptops.
