If you guys listened to the podcast then you know that we were talking about scenarios of changing phones with the android system. How great will it be if you can change phones on a whim and still have all your vital info and programs intact? Now we have some insight on how that might actually work.
Earlier this week the guys over at www.EETimes.com” posted an article. Seems Intel and Infineon are planning on teaming up later in 2008 to produce a SIM card with more memory storage capabilities. Maybe you can see where I’m going with this. We’ll be able to put all of our Android programs on our SIM and transfer them phone to phone without losing anything. You can have your power device for daytime business then switch to your sleek smartphone for evening fun and still have all your data and applications. This is going to go hand in hand with Android! There are only two bad things with this:
1. We will probably be limited because of device hardware. I’m sure we’ll see a rise in gaming applications with companies like Nvidia joining in but when we have apps using higher graphics and faster processing we will lose them in switching devices.
2. We will have to wait to get our hands on those SIM’s until 2009!!!!
This is an exciting time in mobile, can’t wait to see how it pans out. Feel free to comment or email an idea to me.
