Nokia yesterday announced a new profile for Bluetooth. The standard, dubbed SIM Access Profile (SAP), allows a GSM phone to make its SIM card available wirelessly to an authorized nearby device. The standard is designed to add convenience to automotive GSM/GPRS systems. For example, a car with built-in GSM/GPRS and Bluetooth could connect to a GSM network without requiring its own SIM card, instead using the SIM card (including associated phone number and phone book) in the occupant's mobile phone. The standard was recently adopted by the Bluetooth SIG as an official part of the Bluetooth standard. Nokia plans to announce a product based on the standard at the end of October.
