sims are carrier specific, what are the chances that carriers will adopt to simfi
Agam, 13 Feb 2010Simply use joiku spot app for S60 phones. it is much easy.download it from her. http://bit.ly/... moreYou don't understand. Simfi is not only a router that use integrated radio built in the phone, like Joiku. It has integrated radio in Sim card, so even phone with 3G connection without built in WiFi can use it.
Looks like all Nokia-S60 does this with joikuspot app already.
Need to wait and see what good it does compared to the app based Internet sharing to hardware based sharing.
More over the networks should handle the bandwidth when most of the users get ready to ditch mifi's and dongles for SIMFI.

Flat iron cellphone in the near future.
What good wil it be. Turn your phone into a broadcast antenna. First Bluetooth, then FM Transmitter, now this - WiFi router.
There'll be a day that people can cook a turkey just by their phone.
it will work in N900?
Can the Palm Tungsten E2''be fitted with SIMFi card? Can it be used as mobile or to access internet?
LOL. As soon as I saw the article I was like, "my phone already has a wifi router built in", and right after scrolling down the page I see, "HTC HD2 owners are probably smiling right now...". Hahaha I love gsm arena.
I already do wifi tethering through my E71 but after some time it heats up. Hopefully this technology will fix that
This is really awesome
I bet it'll be buggy as hell
good concept of having this! but is this even gonna release in Asian Countries? wifi for poor masses who can't afford high end phones with wifi can then enjoy wifi access. ^_^
nokia,where you at?
just think, the blackberry 9700 just got insanely faster!
N95 can acts as a wifi router via 3rd party application jaiku
hope is available in mexico
buddy, in the phone, the radio component that does the connectivity via gsm or umts, are permanently embedded in the phone hardware. The sim is just a subscription module, and has nothing to do with the cell communication. The sim holds an unique number, called imsi, that distinctly sets the device in the network. So, the radio gsm or 3g communication does not have to go thru the sim, but thru the phone. If a wifi router would have its hardware hosted in the sim, the phone would need to permanently talk via its cell radio module, for the data connections, AND via the sim wifi module, thru the sim serial connection that is not fast enough, with the current phones. Besides, where is the wifi software and who is going to control the communication? If all the sim card does is host a wifi server then it is no big deal, because of power consumption, that is quite high, sim slot position, that is often hidden and screened enough to hinder the wifi communication, and size of antenna, that would make the range of just several meters. So, who is not an engineer, cannot ask himself essential questions when it comes to understanding the difficulties of mobile device designing. Many of the comment-wannabe's are hunting for the first places in the post list, but will stay as dumb as they are, and offend legitimate readers. Be smart, not stupid.
