Royalty free yes, but still need permission from that b@st@rd. What if that b@st@rd stop giving permission say to Samsung for just any bad reason..?

"This proves that at least Apple is in this just to establish a new SIM standard that is smaller (and therefore better) rather than trying to make money off it
I wouldn't trust Apple as far as I could throw them. They wouldn't do this unless they had a long term plan.
Apple will sure have some other thing in mind for giving the license for free...
its not about trusting Apple. Nokia's design is better,its as simple as that. And that's why i think Apple is trying to get the patent by giving it free uses.
Sure.. Mobile companies will be offered a royalty-free license to use the nano-sim in their phones.
But how about the carriers?
Apple is so good a money-making schemes that it doesn't easily share new technologies for free. Who knows, they might charge a royalty PER SIM made, or offer free but with only limited SIM features (except iPhones), or even restrictions on SIM card usage...
Oh, Apple... What are you up to this time?
I don't like Sim tray ! Very hard to me for get sim in my phone !
I do not trust Apple. They have never thought about the customers. If they want to change the size of SIMs, it is absolutely about their internal strategy.
"This proves that at least Apple is in this just to establish a new SIM standard that is smaller (and therefore better) rather than trying to make money off it."
Actually, Nokia's version is smaller and better because there is no tray to put the sim card into.
Apple's design is flawed and doesn't take into account what could happen if stuck.
I trust Apple about as much as I would trust someone who offered me a £3 note. It may be free now but I would bet money it won't be later.
Lol, no way in the world I would trust Apple now. They might say that it's free now. But in the future they will say that the free licence was only for phones that aren't using GSM communications. And this would be like "Give us 15$ per device with GSM communication or we will sue You" haha. It's funny now, but the sad part it's probable as hell...
Apple will make this standard not to save a space but maybe it will have some specifications allows Aplle to spy and getting easily more informations about the user (do u remember Apple's spying issues)
EVEN this micro-SIM IS HARD TO HOLD IT
this is madness and maybe just a way of getting the limelight. The space saved on simcards ia much much less than the space we lose on larger batteries. Let them invest on smaller more powerful batteries, not simcards. To make matters worse apple are leading the pack in battery size growth causes by their high res screens in the ipad i.e ipad3
waleed baloch, 26 Mar 2012I vote Nokia designjust curious, whats nokia's design?
Marc, 26 Mar 2012They'll have extra space for other components in headsets.why they just dont offer microsd with sim funcationality.
