New SIM-format Gets 40% Smaller

June 1, 2012

If you think those micro-SIM cards are tiny already, the newly announced nano-SIM format is smaller. Forty percent smaller, measuring 12.3mm wide by 8.8mm high, and 0.67mm thick.The design has been approved by the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) at a meeting held this week in Japan. It will be packaged to work with older giant SIM-card trays, so
there’s no need to throw away that late-90s Nokia. via
