Samsung 1GB SIM card

Samsung is showing off a 1GB SIM card at the Cartes 2006 expo, which finishes tomorrow in Paris. SIM cards are used to identify users on GSM phone networks; in most cases, however, the cards aren't large enough to hold more than identification and a small amount of content. Samsung's card (not pictured) should be able to hold a substantial amount of content, including music, photos, videos, and multimedia messages. Samsung is additionally advertising the card as having better encryption, as well as faster transfer rates through MMC and USB interfaces. The company has yet to say when the first 1GB SIMs will make it into mobile devices.
