AT&T Working with Apple on SIM Card Smaller than a Micro SIM

Posted by at 12:00 am on June 5, 2011

AT&T’s wireless head Ralph de la Vega in an interview late this week said his company was also joining in Apple’s plan to develop an even smaller SIM card. He hesitated to directly make the link with Apple, like France Telecom’s CEO did, but confirmed AT&T was “working with the industry” to shrink beyond existing sizes. It would “probably” happen, he explained to AllThingsD, and was something that was a logical conclusion.

“We think that making the card smaller and shrinking the size is a no-brainer,” he said.

Apple is believed to be the primary impetus behind development of a standard that would be smaller still than the micro SIM, which itself was a standard first adopted by Apple for the iPad and iPhone 4.
