Apple to not charge royalties? WOAH! OMW! they actually have a heart in the Apple world.
It's royalty free IF it becomes the only used standard for SIM-cards in the future.
Anonymous, 26 Mar 2012Apple has always been consistent about one thing: Design. They never compromise on this, wheth... morereally, can you take out your sim in less than 20 sec with your hand only. What I my saying I give a the whole day, try it.

I still don't know what makes a smaller SIM better than using the good old Mini SIM.
Have you guys seen the LG's whirstwath cellphone review? It uses a regular mini SIM, even the Xperia x10 mini with it's small size used a regular one.
Now, with phones not smaller than 3" diagonal, what's the benefit of a smaller SIM?? There's still the need of space for the camera, so the battery won't ever use the whole space of the phone's back...
Don't know why they don't use SIM card + SD Card holders like the one in Nokia 5610.
I think this isn't a kindness...
How long will be royalty-free? Until it becomes the standard and then we can fully charge everyone.

Apple has always been consistent about one thing: Design. They never compromise on this, whether it works out or not.
I prefer the tray solution of Apple, have you tried pulling out
sims from some phones out there? Annoying.
WOW soon we will need to carry tweezers and pins in order to remove the sim card. This idea make life even better.
Seriously Apple, who do you think is going to fall for this trap? The second somebody decides to use this and it gets popular, you're going to change your mind and try to sue. Screw Nano Sim Cards.
Anonymous, 26 Mar 2012I do not trust Apple. They have never thought about the customers. If they want to change the ... moreAbsolutly agree with you. Even thow now they are saying they will make no money out of it and won`t charge anyone, it`s really hard to trust a company like Apple given their infamous track record regarding patents and injuctions.
Actually what apple is looking for is to remove the sim.
Next step will be...soft sim
nano sim if have internal memory 4,8gb 16gb then is well,becuse after no need also space for mmc,
I can not stand micro sd cards let alone micro sim and now nano sims . JUST STOP . It hardly takes up much room in the device & as others have already said tray,s suck ass .
