Submission + - Apple and Nokia Battle Over Nano-SIM Standard (

asavin writes: "The Subscriber Identity Module, better known as a SIM card, has been a vital part of mobile phone technology for over 20 years now, and this week will see a vital decision taken over its future, with Apple and Nokia set to clash over competing standards for the so-called nano-SIM. On Thursday and Friday this week representatives from Apple and Nokia will appear at the Smart Card Platform Plenary meeting of the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) in Sophia Antipolis (Southern France). This meeting is set to decide on what standard will be used for the "fourth form factor (4FF) UICC," better known as a nano-SIM."

If you're not careful, you're going to catch something.
