iPhone 5 will have the world's smallest SIM card
Desire Athow has rumoring down to a three-step science. You take any newly announced technology advance, write up a summary and then add a headline that includes "iPhone 5."
In a post at ITProPortal, Athow notes this week's announcement from "German tech powerhouse Giesecke & Devrient (G&D)" about the "world's smallest SIM card called the ... Nano-SIM." It's one-third the size of the current microSIM card and 15% thinner. Smaller components mean more space in the phone for other stuff and possibly a thinner phone.
G&D didn't mention Apple, or the iPhone, let alone the iPhone 5. But here's Athow's headline: "Will Apple iPhone 5 Come With Nano SIM?"
Apparently, no. Athow concludes his story: "Chances are though that future smartphones will not have any removable SIM cards at all ..."
