Apple has recently launched their 3G enabled iPad in the US. This ‘upgraded’ iPad will allow users to connect to the Internet via a cellular network as opposed to a Wi-Fi hotspot only as was the case with the first iPads which were launched.
The new 3G iPad requires a micro SIM, something which was to date not available from local 3G mobile operators like Vodacom and MTN. Both Vodacom and MTN are however set to make micro SIMs available to consumers.
MTN today announced that with the advent of the Apple iPad 3G, it has ordered 10 000 micro SIM cards for the product’s eager early adopters.
“MTN is currently in the process of testing and validating the security of these new micro SIM cards, which will be available at Y’ello stores from early to mid June,” MTN said in a press statement.
Vodacom today confirmed that they have also ordered thousands of micro SIM cards, and that these new SIMs should become available in late May.
