In our portal envirionment, there are a lot of users that would like to display some personal information on a lot of webpages like contact info.

Ofcourse these people could type all this info down on each site but the ideal situation would be to have a web part that displays a business card or something that uses data from the my sites! This has a lot of advantages like improved managability etc.

So my question is do you know of a web part that can be used for this purpose or where i can get one?

There is a contactfieldcontrol web part that allows you to specify the user you wish to display information about. It display name, profile picture and job title. Clicking through on the persons name/image will take you to their mysite. OOTB that would seem like the best option.
