Apple Devises Smaller SIM Cards to Design Thinnest iPhones!
Apple has recently submitted a new devise for a standard smaller SIM cards to design thinnest iPhones in future. The new proposed SIM card design would be considerably smaller that the existing micro-SIMs being used in the iPhone 4 and iPad 2 models. If Apple’s devised smaller SIM Card makes its way in smartphone industry, the crafting of thinnest devices would surely become possible for all manufactures of handsets.
“We were quite happy to see last week that Apple has submitted a new requirement to (European telecoms standards body) ETSI for a smaller SIM form factor — smaller than the one that goes in iPhone 4 and iPad,” said Anne Bouverot, Orange’s head of mobile services.
“They have done that through the standardisation route, through ETSI, with the sponsorship of some major mobile operators, Orange being one of them,” she told the Paris leg of the Reuters Global Technology Summit.
Apple had also created some shocks last year whit its suggestion to introduce embedded SIM cards to free itself from the monopoly of carriers over phone distribution.
Though there are many technical issues yet to be resolved before the introduction of smaller SIM Cards, yet Apple hopes that its devised SIM Card could hit the market next year.
We are not sure that Apple’s devised smaller SIM Cards are the sequel of the previous said embedded SIM technology discussed last year or it is a newest suggestion to just make some improvements in removable SIM cards.
