In recent months there has been much controversy over the possible implementation of a standard SIM card smaller than traditional ones. There are currently two models “nano-SIM” , but there is only room for one to gain market approval, some of the world’s leading companies have already planted their battle to be the chosen version .
In a corner are Nokia, Research in Motion and Motorola in the corner while rival is Apple. Both sides are doing a lot of strength to their models of “nano-SIM” are chosen to become industry standards, but a rumor could give advantage to the block as willing to license his design free .
According to the blog FOSS Patents , an anonymous source of the Cupertino company sent him a copy of the letter sent by counsel for Apple to European Institute Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI, for its acronym in English). In the letter the Californian company expressed its commitment to release the design of its “nano-SIM” any business without asking for money to change , in the event that your model is chosen for standardization.
Apple is a company that values its intellectual property and not the gift for any reason, which means that if the information is true would be making a great move for the industry. Keep in mind that the decisions taken by ETSI affect not only Europe but with worldwide reach.This week, the Institute would make a decision as to which model of “nano-SIM” will support . Apple seems to have the lead but still the last word was not said . Before any new update. Track | Engadget | Patents FOSS.
