Mobilewhack being just _slightly_ old-fashioned?

Mobilewhack just posted a review on a SIM-card-reader - and actually recommends it. Now... who REALLY needs such a beast anymore?

Most phones store contacts in internal flash, not on the SIM, as the internal memory allows for more details and more contacts to be stored. And synching services like ZYB allow you to backup your contacts and other data without much effort... so what's the point of SIM readers? Comments, anyone?
