SIM less iPhone coming out in Europe?

The rumor mill concerning the iPhone 4 has reached new heights, with word stating that Apple is working on rolling an iPhone that has a built-in SIM so that it can be used on any wireless carrier – as long as they are partnered with Apple, all within the European Union. This would basically mean a universal iPhone 4 of sorts, eh? The special SIM used would have an upgradeable flash component alongside a ROM component, where the “ROM area contains data provided by Gemalto with everything related to IT and network security, except for the carrier-related information. The flash component will receive the carrier related data via a local connection which could be the PC or a dedicated device, so it can be activated on the network. Gemalto will provide the back-end infrastructure that allows service and number provisioning on the carrier network.”
