iPad overseas

I want to take my ipad2 to Penang. Is it best to buy a sim there as with mobiles?

The short answer is... Yes. Just get one at the airport on arrival.

I´m assuming though that your ipad is unlocked.

Alternatively you could rely on wifi to get online and use skype to make calls.

This way you will not need a sim card.

In Batu Ferringhi. Phones and IPad working. As long as they are unlocked you are OK. Very cheap. 25 MYR for 5 days unlimited broadband.
