The Financial Times had reported that Apple is up like a strong competitor against Smartphone makers over the next industry standard for miniaturized SIM Cards possible with the help of blogs with daily coverage of gadgets and consumer electronics.
In May 2011, it was seen that Apple have had submitted a proposal which was for a standardized SIM Card Design which will be smaller than the “Micro-SIM Card” currently used in the iPhone 4S and iPad. If a smaller SIM Card would be designed it would help and allow Apple to create smaller and thinner devices than that of iPad3.
Such problems had also been observed by other companies which includes Motorola, Nokia and Research in Motion, who are making their standards for these so called “Nano-SIM Cards.”
The Nano-SIM Card is thinner and about a third smaller than the Micro-SIM Card that can allow more space for other functions to be done inside the gadget. Micro-SIMs is already common in the latest generation of smart devices which consists of devices such as Apple’s iPhone 4S and Nokia’s latest cell phone Nokia Lumia.
Apple is already been said to have been backed by most of the “European Operators”. It has reportedly taken some controversial steps to gain to more votes in the final decisions on proposals next week.
There is one of the objections by Nokia to Apple’s Proposal which is the use of “drawer” to protect the Nano-SIM card. The drawer design seems to be seen on the iPhone 4S and iPad, which allows the user to eject the SIM from the side of the device. Nokia has a very strong objection for this type of drawer design.
