SIM to micro-SIM

A German outfit promises a tool to cut a standard SIM card into a micro-SIM

Cut My SIM 3GJuice

The iPad introduced us to the micro-SIM card and if the new iPhone HD uses a micro-SIM as expected, moving an iPhone 3GS SIM card to the devices won't be easy. So what's an Apple fan to do? Well, a German Dutch outfit is now offering a tool to save the pain of snipping a SIM card with a pair of scissors.

Cut My SIM promises to trim your standard SIM card down to size. The small silver tool resembles a cross between a stapler and hole punch (remember those?). Just slip your SIM card inside and it slices off the edges while keeping the all-important chip. And in case you want to reuse your new smaller SIM in another phone, you also get a "back to normal" adapter for fitting it in a larger slot.

You can preorder the Cut My SIM for $25 or 19.95 euros. Currently free shipping is included, but you'll need to wait for the end of June to actually get it in your hands. Also, the price will go up in July.
