There, I said it.
Globe Telecom, the country's second largest communications provider, will be selling nano-SIMs this September. The company is apparently doing this to provide subscribers a new and better mobile experience.
For those wanting to know, nano-SIMs (although they are a million miles away from the true sense of the word "nano") are just like regular SIM cards, it's just that they're 40% smaller and more efficient. The tech industry is expecting this as the next step forward to creating thinner and sleeker mobile devices.
"But TJ, what does this have to do with the iPhone 5?" Easy. The iPhone 5 uses nano-SIM technology, and Globe allegedly ordered 5x the volume relative to regular SIM cards, which means Globe is expecting a lot of early adopters to embrace Steve Job's posthumous baby. And the good thing about nano-SIMs aside from their size? The backwards compatibility.
Yep, this spells iPhone 5 all over it.
P.S. What would they call the next SIM smaller than the nano-SIM? Neutrino-SIM?
'Till my next installment.
