There is a new SIM card from Gemplus with a 1GB memory. I hope SonyEricsson would have updated firmware for phones such as K500/K700/K750 to store files into SIM memory.

Mr Emmanuel Walckenaer, a senior vice-president at Gemplus, the world's leading SIM card maker, said the breakthrough in SIM technology and design is already here.


Called GemXplore Generations, the new SIM cards can store up to 1GB of data. That's about 10,000 times more storage space over current technology which is limited to 128 KB (1GB = 1 million KB).

The new SIM card also has better technology which enables handphone operators to offer personalised services.

'This will open the door for operators to offer new, innovative services. For example, operators can store a small video clip in the SIM card to welcome the user and provide a quick guide on how to use the phone,' said Mr Walckenaer.


For the user, having a larger capacity also means that he will be able to store his entire phonebook and digital content like pictures, music and video all in the SIM, without paying for an additional external flash memory card.

The next-gen SIM cards have been launched already, although mass availability of the larger capacities won't hit the market until later this year or next, Mr Walckenaer said.
