iPhone 5 rumors: Apple “fights” with Motorola, Nokia, RIM over Nano-SIM

The Cupertino company is reportedly trying to push its Nano-SIM technology as the new standard in the mobile world.

However, Apple’s decision doesn’t please its competitors.

According to sources cited by the Financial Times, Apple wants a smaller chip than the current Micro-SIM that equip the iPhone 4S and new iPad.

Designing a smaller SIM card would help Apple build smaller, thinner devices. In order to do so, a special “drawer” is needed in the device to protect the card.

However, rival companies such as Motorola, Nokia and RIM would have to re-engineer the designs of their smartphones.

This way, “phones would need to be re-engineered with this [drawer] in mind,” the insider says.

In addition, discontent also comes from the fact that Apple has control over the standard.

Next week, the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) decides on the proposals for a new, smaller SIM card. The vote is scheduled for March 29.
