The new Nano SIM card
The world of mobiles is going to experience another major change in the future with Nano SIM Card. Subscriber Identification module, or SIM cards, as how we know, are going to experience a big revolution. The revolution may take place in many of its characteristic parameters including shape, size and efficiency. Many technology giants predict this Nano version of the SIM card as the future of the mobile world. The first step of this future of mobile phone technology has already found its base in Germany! Let us take a deep look into this cutting-edge technology that may find a place in our mobile phones one day!
The base concept of Nano SIM Card was once the call or need of the mobile technology giant Apple! Yes! This is not a fairy tale! Apple once revealed really that it needs a smaller sized SIM card to make its mobile devices more compact and efficient. At that time, many experts considered this statement of Apple as a greedy call, as they considered that the types of SIM cards that exist now are already small and compact. However, now, Geisecke & Devrient, a German based electronic technology company claims that it has developed a new type of SIM circuitry that may fit to the needs of Apple!
What is the Change?
The German company claims that it has designed and developed a new type of SIM Card that has a reduced size, which is just two third of the size of the SIM cards that exist now. The company calls this new type of SIM as the Nano SIM Card! The makers of the Nano version of the SIM also reveal that they have made significant changes in the SIM circuitry. If this is true, then this is the first time in 20 years that the SIM circuitry undergoes a change! In addition to this, they also say that they have reduced the thickness of the SIM circuitry card by 15 percentile. When we consider the existing size of the SIM circuitry card, which is very thin, 15-percentile reduction is a big thing really! The makers also call their innovation product as the future of mobile world, since they claim that their product is sure to score well in the factor of efficiency, even though considerable changes have taken place in important characteristic parameters of the product!
What is the Use?
Considering the reduction in size and thickness and marginal change in shape, the Nano SIM Card is 60% smaller than the existing SIM cards in total! This reduction will surely account to increase in the factor of efficiency. If the efficiency of the SIM Card increases, we can expect the future cell phones with reduction in size and thickness, but with same performance and increased net efficiency! This means that future of mobile phones may witness large batteries and increase in memory storage capacity in the mobiles! What is more interesting here is that, G & D also says the new Nano SIM Card will also be backward compatible with the older devices with the help of adapter solutions!
