Gemalto Sticks Facebook on a SIM Card
Gemalto announced a new Facebook application that is installed on the SIM card rather than the phone itself. Facebook for SIM offers core Facebook features, such as friend requests, status updates, wall posts and messages. Because the application relies on SMS for its functionality, the application can be used without the need for a data plan. It is compatible with both pre-paid and post-paid plans. The application provides alerts and pop-up messages when new messages or content is available. Gemalto says the application can run on any phone that uses a SIM card.
