Apple wins battle over nano-SIM standard

But what I want to know is, why on earth wouldn't the ETSI have required all participants to sign an agreement to use FRAND licensing of any relevant patents, right from the beginning, regardless of the outcome? It seems pretty simple to me... if you don't sign, then you are not eligible to submit a proposal for the standard.

If the ETSI isn't releasing info on the winning design at this time, and a representative of the committee splurged the details, someone could be in some trouble with the committee.
AppleInsider's report said there was no definite answer as to exactly which design was chosen. So, you're saying this informant on the committee reported it was Apple's submitted design?

You hit the nail right on the head with that comment, Nokia is p'oed that they won't get to sell as many of there patents to everyone and also mad that apples proposal is royalty free. Because it cuts into there revenue stream for a sim that eventually will be adopted by everyone.
