Jailbroken iPad 3G Sending SMS [Video]

The iPad is jailbroken (at least for the Dev Team guys) and this means that a lot of new stuff will be possible. We saw multitasking, we saw Cydia, now it’s time for text messages. Musclenerd, the popular member of the Dev Team, has just managed to use his jailbroken iPad 3G to send texts using a command line tool, but there no GUI for it (yet?).

Check out the image and video after the break, and you can bet that this is coming to Cydia someday. Next, phone calls?
