2008.12.15 - SIM reader with built in flash memory from ACS

ACS has launched a new USB 2.0 device incorporating both a SIM-sized smartcard reader and 1GB of on board flash memory that acts as a normal flash drive. The reader can be used in a wide variety of applications such as GSM, PKI, electronic payment and home banking.

Since software can be installed onto the reader's built-in flash memory this device is an ideal carrier for portable applications.
