Verizon Starts MicroSIM Trend for LTE Connectivity
You might be aware of the fact that this week had two very important device debuts: Samsung Galaxy Nexus and Motorola Droid RAZR. Both are compatible with Verizon’s LTE network, so it would be a pity not to take advantage of it. Now, the carrier decided to create a new trend: micro SIM cards running LTE.
Last I heard, the Nokia N9 and iPhone 4S were also using microSIMs, so modern devices are up to date with such specs. The first device to get Verizon’s MicroSIM with LTE was the Galaxy Tab 10.1 LTE, so the devices mentioned above are in some way a premiere: first smartphones with micro SIM LTE card. Not that this would change in any way your experience… maybe it will save up some millimeters of space and drain the battery less, who knows?
The thing here is that as far as I know retailers and carriers charge a certain fee to turn your normal SIM into a micro SIM, while other charge you for a brand new SIM. When will we see this service being performed for free? Not all of us own iPhone 4 or 4S units, you know?
