Just when we thought all would be made right again, though, Giesecke & Devrient — the German firm that made the world's first commercial SIMs back in 1991 — has debuted a new "nano-SIM" that trims about 30 percent of the size off the already tiny micro-SIM. Though it's thinner than both the standard SIM and the micro-SIM, G&D promises that reverse compatibility with older devices will still be ensured with an adapter — not a great solution, of course, but it's better than producing an entirely incompatible component.

i bet someone asked what was the use of micro-sims when they were introduced. :pwell devices are getting compact and a smaller sim means less space required by it!

Right now we have dual sim and tri sim phones. In same lines, iPhone 7 or 8 may be a deci sim, or even quinquagint sim phone if we can have a smaller SIM card. Just thinking, why we need a sim card, if the phone could be compatible with each player?

Yeah they should do away with the sim and make authentication based on some code which the users enters on his device to get logged on to a particular network.

Is that not what CDMA devices used to do? Or do you mean a user configurable code?
