New SIM cards can turn mobile phones into WiFi hotspots

Smartcard company Sagem Orga and mobile giant Telefónica have created SIMFi, a SIM card that includes its own WiFi (WLAN) modem. Putting the SIM card in any compatible mobile phone enables users to connect laptops, netbooks and other WiFi-equipped devices to their network's 3G service.

Remy Cricco, Technology Innovation Manager at Sagem Orga, said "We strongly believe that SIMFi, with its unprecedented functionality for wireless access, will significantly improve the user experience. If customers can connect their notebooks to the Web anytime and anywhere by simply using what they have with them most of the time and what is the most trusted secure device – the SIM card – adoption can be expected to be enormous."
