KNOWLEDGE: What the ISO, Mini and Micro SIM Card is all about
Posted by Arne Hess - at 17:19 CET under 09 - Thoughts

During the recent Mobile World Congress I had the chance to speak with some product managers of Munich-based Giesecke & Devrient (G&D), one of the major SIM card manufactures worldwide and for sure one topic was the Micro SIM which Apple brought to our attention when it announced that the upcoming Apple iPad will come with a Micro SIM card slot instead of a Mini SIM or ISO SIM card slot. So what's all the ISO, Mini and Micro SIM is about? When GSM hit the market in 1992, the GSM MoU also made the use of SIM cards (Subscriber Identity Module) mandatory for GSM phones. Basically, there were two SIM cards specified: The ISO SIM and the Mini SIM, also often called Plug-in SIM.
