SIM card maker Giesecke & Devrient attended CTIA and talked to The Verge about the nano-SIM it’s designing using Apple’s proposed standard. G&D said Apple listened to Nokia’s complaint about its design and modified the shape so it would be almost impossible to jam it accidentally into a micro-SIM slot. With Nokia’s major gripe now alleviated, Apple’s design has a good chance of being approved when the European Telecommunications Standards Institute votes on the standard. According to the report, voting is back underway and could be decided as soon as this week.
