iFun now reports the nano-SIM cards have started arriving at T-Mobile’s retail outlets in Germany along with a memo informing them that the new SIM cards were “the latest generation of smartphones expected in the near future.”
Here’s the translated note:
You will receive today a new generation of SIM cards for the latest generation of smartphones that come in the near future on the market. Sort your SIM card please first not in their cards in hand and give it not out to customers. We will inform you shortly about how to proceed.”

It won’t come as a big surprise if ‘iPhone 5’ requires a nano-SIM card as Apple was one of the first companies to start using the micro-SIM standard when it launched iPhone 4.
