I need to be able to use NMB 4.0 with a real SWIM card. Will any smartcard reader do? I was wondering about the size - presumably SIMs have to be held in a full-size smartcard form to fit in the reader? Or do you need SIM-specific hardware?
You need a reader like schlumberger Reflex 72, and a real SWIM card, provided by Oberthur, Gemplus, etc. You can use either a standard card or a "plug-in" card (Sim form factor), depending on what you want to do and what kind of card you have.
