Adding intelligence to mobile phones
Bladox released the Turbo SIM Toolkit Adapter. The product is a mobile phone accessory bringing applications and removable memory card to GSM mobile phones, with tools for development of new applications.

The original product Turbo gives users the ability to use system level applications available otherwise only on newest hi-end mobile phones. The main focus lies on text messages handling (SMS), security (PKI) and positioning. As the part of standard package Turbo comes with several consumer applications: SMS Archive for mass message storage on removable
memory card, privacy oriented Encrypted and Masked SMS, wallet like application Secrets and Reader for reading structured documents stored on the memory card. Further applications are available on the company web.

The second important usage of Turbo lies in M2M (machine-to-man/machine) market. The device provides several universal hardware ports and interfaces for connection of various measurement and control elements. Combined with recycled mobile phones the result is the lowest cost, open and universal M2M solution ready for deployment in transport tracking, security, metering, data acquisition and other areas.

The Turbo can be also used for remote control and measurement. There are several universal ports, interfaces and A/D converters available on the connector. It is trivial to connect for example alarm or thermometer.

The first release of Turbo is for Nokia 3310. Turbo SIM Toolkit Adapter is the first device of the product line and specialized versions equipped with specific sensors will follow.

The company believes in open architecture and provides free development tool chain, documentation, example hardware constructions and developer kits. All the applications are open source, free software.
