SIM Cards: Mini, Micro or Nano – That is the Question

At that time, everything was better – or? After all, we had at that time a uniform standard size SIM card that fit into each device. But today it all looks different: in addition to the standard size (the so-called mini-SIM) there’s still the Nano-SIM in addition to the micro-SIM and we really must take care to fit our existing map in the new smartphone.

But what exactly is actually a mini, micro – or nano-SIM? We give you also an explanation of how you can cut a SIM card may be too large to fit in your brand new smartphone next to a short explanation of the different form factors. Who even doesn’t dare to cut to size, can request a replacement card in the appropriate format with its operator course (usually for a fee).

The Mini-SIM

The mini-SIM should be obvious to anyone who already his own called a cell phone during the pre Smartphone. The map is 25 mm long and 15 mm wide, with a thickness of 0.76 mm. The mini-SIM is currently still the usual SIM card, which gets you by network operators. However, due to the ever more compact construction of newer smartphones this circumstance changes slowly but surely.

The Micro-SIM

As a third form factor card known, the micro-SIM is a smaller version of the mini-SIM. Their dimensions are 15 mm long and 12 mm wide same thickness, like the mini-SIM card. Technically there are no differences between the micro and the mini-SIM – only the frame around the chip around is narrower.

The Nano-Sim

With only 12.3 mm long and 8.8 mm wide is the Nano-SIM – as the name suggests – the smallest card in the SIMs. Actually it is even thinner than its two siblings, only 0.67 mm, because here the frame is completely missing. First introduced was the Nano SIM iPhone 5 with the Apple and takes its place today in many modern smartphones.

Any dog can bite, but with the necessary education, human and canine side, these accidents can be avoided.

Beware of strange dogs
You and your family, especially children, should refrain from petting a strange dog, especially if they are behind a fence, tethered or restricted in some way. If you come across a dog while you go ride it may seem very nice from a distance, but you do not know their behavior and history. If you opt to caress it and the dog not feel excited, shy or nervous, ask for permission to the owner and ask if it is a friendly dog. If you caress a strange dog at least you do not near your face to yours. Allows that you smell your hand and move near only.

In Germany the brand Louis Erard is still an insider tip among watch fans. This status may not be due to collection and positioning. Because the company from the Swiss Le Noirmont is exclusively mechanical watches for men and women, the design of which is classic, modern and pleasantly reduced in their now five lines. With prices at almost 500 euros, beginning and ending at about 3000 euro – only with Rosé gold enclosures and stone trim cost prestige models even up to 9000 euro.
This is today greater awareness of Louis Erard, is located mainly on the history of the brand. Because in 38 of almost 80 years of its existence, Louis Erard dealt primarily with the clock Assembly for third parties. The company benefits from the know-how acquired during these years until today.

Louis Erard excellence moon phase chronograph

, The year 2003 marks the restart of the company. Supported by a group of private investors to Alain Spinedi focus was put back on the production of clocks in the upper middle class under the name Louis Erard. This maxim is the company remained true to this day and is also in the boom years to 2007 and since 2010 succumbed to the temptation, priced upwards to Orient. This speaks for the long-term nature of the project and is also possible because the company companies operates independently and is not listed. The success proves the small company with 26 employees right: in the first eight years after the restart more than 100,000 manufactured watches in the workshops of the House. A specially developed exclusive regulator module, Louis Erard 2008 has entered the world of complications. Moreover, Louis Erard has given a modern twist with this development of one of the most classic watch complications.

Seiko: The clock knowing where you are

The new ASTRON by Seiko was one of the highlights of BASELWORLD 2012. what importance this watch in Seiko enjoys, can you read already on the naming. Because the first quartz wristwatch in 1969 by Seiko also bore the name of astron, and marked the beginning of a revolution of the clock world.

Seiko ASTRON GPS solar in the variant with stainless steel bracelet

A similar fundamental upheaval will not trigger probably the ASTRON of 2012. But it represents the technical ultimate a comfortable bracelet timepiece for frequent travelers at the moment. To make solar cells ensure that you – worry not to power of the clock at least, as long as the clock every few days getting some sunlight. A conventional clock about three pointer ensures a quick readability and must you readjust the perpetual calendar only in the year 2100 by one day (when the then falling 29 February will bring numerous watches a date problem).

So far, so comfortable – but already known. But with their new time adjustment function, the ASTRON enters technical Neuland. Who wanted to rely so far on an absolutely accurate time on your wrist, had to rely on a clock and then be sure, that he is one of the currently six stations in the lobby that broadcast a time signal. Instead of such terrestrial broadcast stations with a limited range, the ASTRON uses the time signals of the GPS satellite network. This network covers the entire surface of the Earth with at least 24 active satellites. As long as you can see the sky about themselves, the ASTRON can receive the exact time signal of a GPS satellite’s atomic clock. This is done automatically once per day. At your fingertips you can query in addition individually the time, then represented with a theoretical deviation of 1 second in one hundred thousand years on the dial.

In addition, the ASTRON uses also take advantage of the GPS system to the location and time zone detection. It is therefore first watch in the world, which assigns the correct time zone to your site and automatically adjusts the local time of the place. Seiko has divided the Earth into a million squares and assigned each of these squares to the right time zone.

Also in the profile distinctively designed: ASTRON GPS solar

-Friendly time zone conversion is now as comfortable as never before: you must reside in the open and press a lever for six seconds. Then the ASTRON absorbs connection to at least four satellites, determines the location and the associated time zone and set the clock to the current local time in 30 seconds. She regard all 39 time zones on Earth, so those who have slightly sloping deviations from the normal time, such as, for example, Nepal, located three hours and 45 minutes before Central European summer time.

, The indication of a second time zone and adjusting to daylight saving time with just a push of a button complete the facilities of the watch.
