Nokia-Apple Nano Sim Fuss. Episode 2. RIM accuses Apple of cheating.

| March 30, 2012 | 11 Replies


There’s been some more movement since the last time we discussed the nano SIM battle between Apple and Nokia (+others).

Nokia now appears to be refusing to license key patents for nano SIM in order to use Apple’s nano SIM for ‘free’ because Nokia believes Apple’s new design break’s ETSI’s own rules on the nano SIM design.


Apple on the other hand have been accused by RIM of cheating. RIM claims Apple…

“…is trying to rig ETSI’s decision by registering their own  by registering its own personnel as representatives from Bell Mobility, SK Telekom and KT Corp.”

BTW, here are some links from engadget/TheVerge where you can follow the nano SIM story:

    Typical bullying tactics of Apple, always been that way. They have become such a fat cow doesnt matter to them, the reason why even AT&T and other operators wants to support other products.

    Hope someone in ETSI have some sense and stop Apple from even participating in the design.
