Multimedia SIM cards go on trial with Windows Mobile devices
TeliaSonera is the first operator in the Nordic and Baltic region to trial new multimedia SIM cards which in the future will make it easier for users to transfer stored information and services between different mobiles.

The internal pilot trial will be conducted during 2007 with the new multimedia SIM cards, called GalaxSIM, together with Giesecke & Devrient (G&D), one of the world's largest manufacturer of smart cards. The multimedia SIM cards will be featuring a storage capacity of over one gigabyte (GB) for the preliminary trials. The trial will be conducted on a P3600 (pictured) Windows Mobile device from HTC.

Test cards with phone book synchronization and pocket PC games The GalaxSIM being used for the TeliaSonera pilot trial comes with a variety of information and applications incorporated into its high density NAND flash memory: graphics and logos, settings files for modifying network parameters, a selection of pocket computer games, and a phone book application produced by G&D, called GalaxSIM Sync, which enables automatic backup of phone book entries on the SIM card.

GalaxSIM Sync immediately recognizes new entries to the cell phone and saves them as backup on the SIM card in the typical VCard format, thereby allowing the entries to be easily and completely transferred from the card to a new phone whenever the owner changes handsets.
