New type of MicroSD Card brings NFC functionality for iPhone
DeviceFidelity has unveiled a one-of-its-kind MicroSD card that comes with integrated NFC functionality. Hence even if you don’t have a NFC-enabled phone like an iPhone, you can use this memory card to make payment through your smartphone. The makers here have teamed up with Spring Card Systems LLC and launched a service called “moneto” which brings NFC-goodness to iPhone.
DeviceFidelity will sell the card, an iPhone case and a prepaid card issued by University National Bank with $10 balance all for price of $80. For the mobile payment service, MasterCard Inc’s “PayPass” non-contact payment service is used. For Android users, the service will become available in Q2 this year.
