A battle between Apple and its rival smartphone maker has broken out over the next generation nano-SIM standard, FT reports. So far, Apple is leading the battle as the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) is on track to vote on the nano-SIM next week, against Motorola Mobility, which was acquired by Google last year whereas for Nokia and RIM grabbing up the standard is an important technical step in the miniaturisation of smartphone. The voting process within the independent standards body has come under scrutiny this week following a move by Apple to significantly increase its number of votes.
