PETALING JAYA: Maxis Bhd is the first cellular service provider in the country to introduce the new nano SIM for the iPhone 5.
Early adopters of iPhone 5 can get a nano SIM card for RM25 apiece, from Sept 24.
The SIM card will be available at selected Maxis Centres in the Klang Valley, specifically at the Kuala Lumpur City Centre, Taman Tun Dr Ismail, Sunway Pyramid and The Gardens.
It will also be available at the Queensbay Mall in Penang and Danga Bay in Johor Baru. It will be made available at the other Maxis Centres nationwide by month end.
The nano SIM is 30% smaller and 15% thinner than the existing micro SIM. It measures 12.3 x 8.8mm in size and is 0.7mm thick; this frees up more space in the phone for other components, such as larger batteries.
It offers the same functionality as other SIM cards and is backward compatible with existing SIM card designs.
