The Third Device

A blog about the iPad.

It may not make calls (yet), but it will send texts.

Looks like as early as now, someone’s already figured out a way to hack an iPad 3G and use it to send SMS messages. Note though that he had to use a T-Mobile SIM that was trimmed to fit the MicroSIM format; the AT&T MicroSIMs that come with US iPad 3Gs apparently have texting disabled.

Pretty exciting news for us here in the text-happy Philippine islands. You have to wonder if a hack for voice call capability isn’t too far behind.
