Globe Telecom is set to make the revolutionary Nano-SIM available within the month of September at all Globe stores nationwide.
The Nano-SIM is much smaller than the original regular SIM (Subscriber Identification Module) card at 12.3 millimeters wide, 8.8 millimeters high, and 0.67 millimeters thick. The original SIM is measured 25 mm × 15 mm.
Globe said they have ensured that the demands for Nano-SIMs shall be met by the company by stocking 5 times more than their usual piles. More smart phones are expected to use the Nano-SIM like the upcoming iPhone 5 as more spaces are needed while maintaining the overall sizes of smart phones to minimum.
The Nano-SIM has the same functionality and is backward-compatible with the previous SIMs.
