Vodafone today revealed that they now have 500,000 new nano-SIMs in stock but quickly deleted the post as it may have come a day early.

In the announcement they write 'the first devices have now been announced' suggesting that perhaps the blog posting was intended for tomorrow after Apple announced its new iPhone.

They're so slim and tiny you might only be able to handle them with tweezers – but imagine the extra space the new nano-SIM card frees up inside your handset. The first devices have now been announced – and Vodafone has now got 500,000 of the new 12.3 mm x 8.8 mm nano-SIMs in stock.

Stripped of all excess plastic, this fourth generation SIM card is 40 percent smaller than a micro-SIM, but supports the conventional eight electrical contacts and fits backwards into current micro-SIM slots so that you can use it during any changeover period.

With manufacturers feeling the pressure to fill slimmer devices with ever more features – every bit of extra space is valuable. The only question is, what will manufacturers pack into those precious extra mms?

I think I will cut my actual micro sim too. This should be the best for the first time. I made this also with my 3G Sim for the iPhone 4 and I had never problems with it! Greets
