The Nano-SIM: The SIM Card Gets Even Smaller

Jeff Hughes, Digital Trends:

As is the way with most tech, SIM cards are poised to get even smaller than they are now. Gieseck & Devrient, the company responsible for the first commercial SIM card 20 years ago, is introducing a new product called the nano-SIM. The Munich-based tech group will be displaying the new SIM card at a trade show in Paris, November 15 to 17.

The Nano-SIM will be 30 times smaller than the micro-SIM cards used in the iPhone 4 and the recently launched 4S, and 60 times smaller than the 25mm x 15mm SIM cards used in many handsets today. The world’s smallest SIM will measure approximately 12mm x 9mm, and will have decreased in thickness by 15 percent—a technological feat the company is very proud of.

And phones will just get thinner, faster and have more battery life. Don’t you just love technology?
