Apple Promises To Make Nano-SIM Licensing Free If Rivals Agree To Its Proposal


Apple believes that even the micro-SIM is too big for the iPhone.
Apple has agreed to give rival smartphone makers free licensing if its nano-SIM standard is adopted.

It was revealed last week that Apple is pushing to make its new nano-SIM the next industry standard for miniaturized SIM cards. The company has the backing of most European mobile operators, but rival smartphone vendors — particularly Motorola, RIM, and Nokia — are against the idea.

In a bid to win them over, Apple has promised that it will make nano-SIM licensing free if its proposal is approved.
