With or without QWERTY keypads, mobile phones have one thing in common: they all require sim cards to function. SIM cards give mobile phones the ability to talk to other people and other mobile functions. Mobile phones are basically useless with these small cards.

 

Some start-up companies (such as Netspectrum) are working on a new generation of SIM cards that take advantages of the rich features in recent phones and deliver multi-media, mobile web based services for operators.
