Sim Tactics

1gbsimSome news on the sim card front entered our mailbox today as Samsung announced the birth of a sim card with one GB of storage. Since most phones can only store contact data, this is a feature for the true power user. On the other hand, the operators can install a host of services on there. I guess for real good use we just have to wait for one of the vendors to bring us a phone that can utilize the sim memory better.

On the other hand, French operator Bouygues might be an interesting partner. They have just teamed up with Sandisk to tie content DRM’s to a sim card level where consumers can’t use the content without the correct sim inserted to the device. To bad Sandisk doesn’t do the 1GB trick yet
