I really don't understand this contraposition between
smart cards and mobile phones as "virtual" cards.
In each mobile phone there is a "real" smart card inside,
the SIM. Insofar a mobile phone ist just equivalent to
card + reader + some logic + modem.
The smard cards manufacturers also produce the SIMs.
The chips are the same. The market is the same.
Where is the difference?
