The GSM Association (GSMA) has announced the formation of a task force to spearhead development of an embedded SIM technology that can be remotely activated. The task force includes technical experts from major operators worldwide, including AT&T, China Mobile, Deutsche Telekom, France Telecom Orange, KT, NTT DOCOMO, SK Telecom, Telecom Italia, Telefónica, Verizon Wireless and Vodafone, all of whom will work together or the technology's development.

The goal of the new SIM is to bring Internet connectivity to more devices, like cameras, eReaders, smart meters and standard MP3 players - in other words, it's a major step towards the creation of the "Internet of Things," a vision of Internet's future where nearly all objects are Web-enabled.
