T-Mobile Crafts New 'Embedded SIM'
Today T-Mobile announced a new type of SIM card that can be embedded into devices for machine-to-machine communications. The new SIM, which is made from silicon, not plastic, is small (the size of the head of a pin), rugged and can endure the elements. The new SIM provides all the same functionality as a standard SIM, but the smaller footprint and more durable design will allow companies to build it directly into their equipment without the need for provisioning and manually inserting SIM cards. The technology is not meant for consumers, but represents a new front for embedded, intelligent wireless devices.
get rid of sim cards
gsm trying to be cdma?
now that t-mobile is planning to put it inside their devices,will they be no different than the cdma counterpart?
i hope they're not trying to phase out sim slot. it's very small to bother them so i think they should just leave sim and its slot alone....
