Micro Sim – Whats the Big Deal About it?

With the over-ly hyped and trendsetting iPad and the most recent invasion of iPhone4 to Malaysian shores, mobile operators have jumped into the bandwagon of providing micro sim cards…

Current mobile operators in Malaysia that carry Micro Sim will be:

Maxis & Digi – Coz they have the iPhone4 and they charge for the conversion lo 😦
