It's downright silly to think that smaller SIM cards are going to allow for smaller phones. The length and width of a phone is dictated by its screen size and battery size. These devices can't magically shrink forever; they have to be comfortable to type on, fit the hand well, etc. Existing SIM cards are already just a fraction of an inch thick (they aren't going to matter to future devices, and the current micro flavor is small enough that there's no way shrinking it will somehow increase internal real estate *or* allow for new designs.
Agreed. I don't see the point of a smaller sim card, other than the potential of me crushing it in my ape-like hands.
