SMS on iPad 3G

Musclenerd from the iPhone Dev Team is back again today with more teasers for iPad users. This time posting some iPad information on his Twitter page. He links to a video showing the iPad sending SMS messages to an iPhone. There is no app for this at the moment, as the iPhones SMS app does’t run natively on the iPad, so it’s all done through code. Also as the AT&T sims bundled with the iPads dont support SMS, he’s using a hacked up T-Mobile sim so it fits in the Micro Sim size slot the iPad uses.

It’s a sign of things to come though, even if you do have to use another sim card just to do it.
Would you be willing to (literally) chop, and change sim cards around just to send sms messages to people?
