Both Etisalat and Du have announced upcoming availability of the iPhone 5-compatible nano-SIM card.

Etisalat's nano-SIMs are currently available from its Business Centre and Outlets across the UAE and Du said the cards will be available from all Du shops from tomorrow.

Khaled ElKhouly, chief marketing officer at Etisalat, said: "To meet customer demand, Etisalat placed a large order to ensure wide availability of the nano-SIM. Customers can now get the SIM cards at any of Etisalat's points of sales.

"In a matter of weeks, Etisalat will offer the new iPhone 5 to customers allowing them to choose from a wide range of Etisalat's plans including some that will offer the device for free. We urge our customers to take advantage of Etisalat's upcoming iPhone 5 bundled plans and experience it on the country's first and widest 4G LTE network."

Etisalat's 4G LTE network supports Internet speeds of up to 150Mbps and supports performance-heavy operations such as video-streaming and network gaming. It covers more than 80% of the country's populated areas.

Du said new and existing customers wishing to get to a nano SIM card can do so and pledged an application process that would last "less than five minutes".

"We are thrilled to offer our customers the latest SIM card technology, which can be used in the newly released smartphones. As always, we endeavour to deliver the most innovative solutions to our customers to meet their communications needs," said Farid Faraidooni, chief commercial officer, Du.
