    No and Yes. As of iOS 4.x, there are no Smart Card Services provided by Apple running with which to communicate with a Smart Card Reader (External Accessory) of any type. There are iOS developers currently working with partners in providing integration for specific Smart Card Readers directly into their product largely using their own Bluetooth adaptor to provide the needed BT Serial Profile as well.

    There is no USB port on the iPad/iPad2, so you would also need an approved 30-pin External Accessory to support attaching this to the iPad/iPad 2. Then you would need the integration within the Application.
