All you need to know about nano SIMs - before they are EXTERMINATED

Re: I'll have you know...

You mean mini SIM?

I think that switch was quite a bit earlier - the Ericsson GH 197 from 1993 had a "normal (mini) SIM". I worked for an operator rolling out one of the first GSM networks so we had all the early phones from Orbitel & Co - I noted that the large SIM became rare quite fast.

Though some, like Motorola managed to cram the large SIM into surprisingly small phones for some years after that.

Re: Erm, not new or original

Sorry, restating from one of my earlier posts...

There's also the Ericsson GH388, launched in 1995 with the same feature. Go find the manual: Ericsson publication number EN/LZT 126 1298 R1A dated October 1995, page 42.

"To call a phone number in a message. Press YES when a phone number is found in the display to call the number direct."

Can we just agree that there IS prior art?

Re: Before diving head first, check there is water in the pool

Well, Ericsson GH388 was launched in 1995 and could dial a phone number from a SMS. Extract from manual p42. Ericsson publication number EN/LZT 126 1298 R1A dated October 1995:

"To call a phone number in a message

Press YES when a phone number is found

in the display to call the number direct.

After the number has been called, the message

is considered as read"

Enough water in the pool now?

I do NOT understand why this previous art has not invalidated that bs patent long ago. Sad that Ericsson didn't file a patent, then they could sue both Apple and HTC :-)
