Stephane Richard, France Telecom’s CEO, who also own Orange, recently gave an interview to All Things D, and he talked about a number of things, including Microsoft and Nokia, RIM, Android and also talked about Apple and the iPhone.
We heard recently that Apple and Orange are working on developing a new smaller SIM card which they are hoping will be adopted as the industry standard SIM card, and Stephane Richard had something interesting to say about the next generation iPhone.
We are going to work with them in order to standardize a new format of SIM which takes into account our needs with security and authentication and also is compatible with their wishes in terms of size.
I understood that the next iPhone would be smaller and thinner and they are definitely seeking some space.
Of course Richard could be talking about the 2012 iPhone and not this years model, as we suspect it will take a lot longer than a few months to have the new SIM card standard approved.
Have a look at our iPhone 4S review and also make sure you read or article on the difference between the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S or take a look and our article on Android vs iPhone to see which smartphone and mobile platform is best for you.
