Hi all,

as we are getting more and more inquiries for micro-SIM (3FF) FPC
adapters for the SIMtrace, I would like to inquire on this list before
we go into productin.

My main inquiry is about the orientation.  As you know, the current
mini-SIM adapters come in four flavors, one for each of the possible
orientations.  Hoewever, as there are still few phones with 3FF SIM
card support, I was hoping we don't need to produce 3FF FPC adapter
cables for all four orientations.

Does anyone on this list know which orientations exist and which don't?
This would help us to proceed quickly with manufacturing the adapters,
without spending extensive amounts of time researching on required
