iPad 3G with an Integrated SIM Card Before the End of 2010 [REPORT]

The Telegraph reports that Apple is gearing up to launch a slightly updated iPad WiFi + 3G model which will feature an integrated SIM-card, remotely programmable to any carrier, in contrast to the micro-SIMs currently used. According to “a senior source at a mobile operator”.

Apple has long been trying to build closer and closer relationships and cut out the operators. But this time they have been sent back to the drawing board with their tails between their legs

The reason Apple will do this is because the iPad is not subsidized by mobile carriers. So according to The Sunday Telegraph, Apple plans to launch the integrated-SIM variant of the iPad around the late December and early January. [via 9to5mac]
