Mobile: nano-SIM land

The Nano-SIM will be the next card to equip smartphones, tablets and other mobile devices. This map, created by Giesecke & Devrient, allows access to the Internet and mobile telephony and can also store contacts and messages. Additional information such as account IDs could happen soon. For now, it's the physical size of the SIM card it is. In 2010, Apple revolutionized the chip by ordering a weight loss program by 52%, just enough to get the Micro-SIM's iPhone 4. More compact, it represented a saving of space for the manufacturer of Cupertino. 
Almost two years later, that few devices Micro-SIM (800 Nokia Lumia, for example), Giesecke & Devrient is again changing the SIM card with the Nano-SIM. Its surface is reduced by 30% compared to the Micro-SIM. The thickness is also affected with 15% less. Thus, the measurements went from 15 x 12 x 0.76 mm for the Micro-SIM 12 x 9 x 0.66 mm for the Nano-SIM. It has just been presented at the European Telecommunications Standards for certification. This new card could be used by the next iPhone.
