Vodafone UK ready to roll with stockpiled nano SIMs for Apple iPhone 5 launch

“Vodafone UK has confirmed, on a now pulled blog post, that it has 500,000 nano SIMs in stock and ready to roll out for those that want them,” Stuart Miles reports for Pocket-lint.

“But wait, there aren’t any phones available in the UK that will take the new nano SIM yet – that’s because, at the time of writing, the iPhone 5 hasn’t been launched yet,” Miles reports. “‘They’re so slim and tiny you might only be able to handle them with tweezers – but imagine the extra space the new nano-SIM card frees up inside your handset,’ Vodafone tells us, before adding: ‘The first devices have now been announced – and Vodafone has now got 500,000 of the new 12.3 mm x 8.8 mm nano-SIMs in stock.'”
