As announced by Apple, the iPad tablet can support any 3G carrier with "micro-SIMs". The micro-SIM chip inside the iPad allows the subscriber to access the carrier network. While the resulting card provides the same functions as other SIMs, the microSIM requires additional precision during manufacturing as it is embedded in a smaller plastic casing.The Size of the micro-SIM is about a half of a regular SIM card (12x15 mm instead of 15x25mm).

Is a micro-SIM the same thing as a micro-SD card?

No, a micro-SD card is a different product serving a different purpose. SD cards can’t do what SIM cards do, which is identify you to the network. The purpose of SD cards is tostore information, an SD card can hold gigabytes of multi-media files (pictures, music, videos, etc).

The micro-SIM’s primary function is to identify you to the carrier, and to run micro-applications to ensure you have the best experience of your carrier’s services.
