So, reading all your comments, and also other ones on many sites, nobody wants a stupid nanoSIM. So why are they doing it???

so they remove the "redundant plastic jerk" and replace it with some metal tray sized about the same with the "redundant plastic jerk"

I know every millimeter is important but give me a break. Normal SIM cards were good for watch-sized phones and now they'll put pico-nano-two-atoms-and-a-photonSIM cards into phones with 4-5 inch displays. And make phones even thinner and more breakable and batteries even smaller.

What's the dam point of downscaling the size of a Sim card?? First micro Sim, now probably nano Sim.... And yet you won't have a memory card slot.... Rather than making you're Sim card small (which doesn't take up much space), make your charger smaller which is uselessly big.

I really hope they don't go with Apple's Design because it s not backwards compatible with the micro-sim. At least with a micro-sim, I can buy an Adapter to use on an older phone.

NOKIA is dead, how come they need the nano-SIM cards!!!!

Motorola, Nokia, RIM and Apple have proposed a design for the nano-SIM to the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI), which eventually chose the Apple solution.

What's the point? The phones are going to be that small so they couldn't house the micro one? That one was already too small to handle...
BTW, I seem to be the fifth!
