Of course, if you have a SIM cutter tool every SIM can be a nano SIM.
This might explain the terminology (or just confuse you more).

But I ran across this:

Apple will produce three models of the iPhone: one optimized for U.S. carrier AT&T's network and spectrum bands, another for Sprint and Verizon's U.S. norms and a third for the rest of the world, including two European operators.

Only Deutsche Telekom in Germany and Everything Everywhere in the UK will initially be able to offer the fastest internet access to iPhone 5 users in their markets, because they are the carriers holding the right frequencies.
So while the two European operators do have the right frequency, the phones sold in Europe will be different in some regard from the ones sold in the US. Apple won't be making phones that use other frequencies, so I'm unclear about the need for different models.

I don't disagree about the way PatNY comes off in regards to Apple, but I was confused by the fact that he has an iPod (according to his device list).
