What device will allow me to tether?

Australia smart phone filter: I need to buy a new smart phone. I would like one that will allow me to occasionally connect my laptop to the internet. (Tethering?) Clearly I'm not that tech savvy so I don't want to jailbreak (?) etc. Is this possible with any smart phone on the market in Australia?

I currently use an iphone. I am happy to switch brands. I only really use the iphone for basic email/calendar/maps/music/a few basic apps like train timetables etc and quick searches.
I travel about twice a month for work (in Aust) and don't want to pay for a separate mobile internet connection or pay exorbitant hotel internet charges. So my internet use while on my laptop is not that data-heavy just basic email/file transfers/admin type stuff.
