Re: Heh. A no-win situation with El Reg
Mobile operators have been clinging desperately to physical SIMs in order to prevent customers from switching easily.
Quite the opposite. Mobile operators would love for someone to make non-removable SIMs a thing as that would mean they would get handset lockdown for free. That's what used to happen in the pre-GSM world, and what has been going on for decades in the US with the horrible CDMA carriers.
I hope this crap doesn't take off, because the moment this jumps into GSM handsets, operators will lock 'em down hard. And all because Apple has to keep their control freakery alive.
