Amsterdam, Netherlands -- Gemalto, the world leader in digital security, and LG Electronics, a worldwide technology and design leader in mobile communications, today announce the availability of the first commercial mobile phone supporting the Smart Card Web Server (SCWS1), the LG Renoir (LG-KC910). Now ready for worldwide deployment, the LG Renoir opens up a new era for SIM-based application development.

For operators, the LG Renoir will tremendously simplify applications development and distribution to the mass-market, making the most of the unique advantages of the SIM card: ubiquitous presence in GSM networks, convenience and portability, and the invisible remote management of applications. This will greatly improve the time to market for deploying new services on the field.

By bringing Web technologies to the SIM, the Smart Card Web Server technology will open up the card to a large community of developers who can take advantage of this well-known environment to bring operators and end-users a large range of existing and innovative applications.

The combination of the Smart card Web Server and the high-end features of the LG Renoir, such as the touch screen interface and the advanced browser, offer end users a large set of convenient applications provided by their operators with state of the art user interface.

“This SCWS-compatible handset from LG is in line with our strategy to continually provide the most innovative solutions, and Gemalto has been our key partner in making this solution available for the first time. Including widgets and operator bookmarks, the Smart Card Web Server functionality provides mobile operators with a powerful and flexible tool to develop and offer services and applications to their end users,” said Frédéric Christophe, Director Engineering and Standards, LG Electronics Mobilecom France.

“LG is a pioneer in recognizing the strong value of SIM-based SCWS technology for everyone involved in the mobile industry” said Philippe Vallée, executive vice president, Telecom, Gemalto. “Gemalto is excited that its collaboration with LG has made this important solution available rapidly worldwide for the benefits of our common customers.”

Gemalto and LG plan to jointly market the solution worldwide.

The LG Renoir (LG-KC910) will be available starting in December 2008.

Beginning in 2009, LG plans to have the SCWS feature available on most LG HSDPA handsets.
