Morpho presents SIMply Replug: a card combining two SIM plug form factors
Flintbek, August 2, 2012
Morpho (Safran group) presents the new multi-form factor card "SIMply Replug" – a card containing two different SIM form factors.
While today the "2FF" SIM plug (sized 15 x 25 mm) is typically used in most mobile devices, some new devices require the smaller form factor "3FF," where the plug is sized 12 x 15 mm.
With SIMply Replug mobile network operators can now offer a single card containing a 2FF and a 3FF SIM plug allowing clients to conveniently use either of them as required by their mobile handset. This two-in-one solution means cost-savings for operators.
It gives users the freedom to switch conveniently between handsets that require different SIM card formats. Previously, this would only have been possible through the use of an adapter. In addition to being inconvenient, this also involved the risk of damaging the SIM slot. Once it has been removed, the smaller 3FF plug can be re-inserted into the bigger 2FF frame.
The first volumes of SIMply Replug have already been delivered to mobile network operators.
