Globe’s micro-SIM card is here!

Was just talking to Globe Telecom‘s head of corporate communications, and after showing her the iPad, she told me that Globe’s micro-SIM is already here.

I expected that Globe would eventually introduce the micro-SIM here but not this soon. The Apple iPad 3G uses a micro-SIM instead of the regular-sized SIM.

Here’s a good comparison between the mini-SIM and the micro-SIM:

Then, I realized — Apple iPhone 4G will be announced on June 7 and the phone will also be using the micro-SIM (based on Gizmodo’s dis-assembled 4G unit).

Now it makes sense. I asked for details and was told it will be available in stores and will be priced just like the regular Globe SIM cards.

  1. mura lang ang micro sim sa globe :) wala pang 100 php. mas okay yung bili nalang kayo ng sim pag ginupit kasi minsan nagkakaproblema.

  2. I precisely desired to appreciate you again. I am not sure the things I could possibly have sorted out in the absence of those points documented by you regarding such a problem. Previously it was a daunting problem in my position, but observing a new specialized strategy you processed the issue took me to weep over gladness. I’m thankful for this information as well as pray you realize what a great job that you are putting in instructing many people all through your web site. More than likely you haven’t come across any of us.
