Nano-SIM cards are now a reality

Giesecke & Devrient has produced the world’s first nano-SIM card. Measuring in at only 12mm x 9mm the new nano-SIM is 30% smaller than the micro-SIM.

Apple -- recall Apple wants to do away with SIM cards so they can make the iPhone even thinner but some carriers in Europe gave Apple some pushback.

This is absurd. My 4-year old Nokia E71 is 10mm thin and uses a regular SIM card to operate. It doesn't need a Micro SIM...and definitely not a Nano SIM. Why? Because the smaller SIMs are not necessary to build a thin device with a small form factor.
There is no reason whatsoever to introduce something even smaller than the Micro SIM. The only reason to do such a thing is to make it harder for wireless consumers to transfer their SIM's between devices. This trend has very little to with engineering. It has everything to do with more manufacturer control and less choices for the end user.
