    DeviceFidelity and SpringCard Launch Moneto, the World’s First Multi-Platform Mobile Wallet for iPhone and Android at CES. The SD Card contains an NFC radio and antenna that are encrypted together to deliver MasterCard PayPass technology to any Android Smartphone. Pretty exciting news for those that were feeling left out.

    So will Verizon not allow this app to be accessed on the market and claim they don't support this NFC payment application like they do for Google Wallet on a Galaxy Nexus?

    My guess this is the nail in the coffin for Verizon not wanting to support Google Wallet on a Galaxy Nexus or this app :D

    It sounds like a great idea. The only problem that I have with it, is that I already have an SD card with all my music on it installed. Is there any word about free space being on the card?

    The website does not indicate how much space is available on the micro SD card. But, there is documentation on how to transfer data from your current micro SD card to the new one.

    The article is very interesting. It says that it uses an NFC enabled microSD chip embedded in a protective iphone CASE. It's not in the phone??? How would that work??

    Does it really take so long to take out a wallet and swipe a card?

    it would obviously have some type of interface with the iphones connector and then provide the same interface on the case for users to plug in their iphone data/charger cords. it would act as a middle man for the iphone data port that is located on the bottom of each iphone. thank GOD we don't have to resort to that kind of interface due to having expandable (sdcard) storage options on most phones!

    Seriously they want the consumer to pay $70.00 so we can have their service on our phone so they can make money off every transaction.
    They should be giving these away or at a price for less than a comparable replacement SD card.

    If they used there heads & stop thinking about the quick buck & gave them away. They would corner the market & be fat dumb & happy in no time with the service fees off each transaction.

    I swear these companies cant see past the quick buck anymore for the long term benefits.

    That's assuming that the device tags the transaction with the vendor that supplied the NFC hardware. Otherwise it is just MasterCard that is making money on every transaction. IF this is the case, I wholeheartedly agree with you and would be handing them out like Chiclets in Tijuana, Mexico (you only get this reference if you've been there!)

    the point of the phone vs debit card is that this is a step towards a future where we only need one device, perhaps store our drivers license on there too. im all for a paperless future

    It will be YEARS before you can ditch the plastic in favor of an NFC chip, not to mention it would need both mastercard/visa capabilities, possibly AMEX since a lot of corporate accounts use it.

    The real advantages I see for an NFC chip are controlling your household....stuff like the garage opener, door lock, alarm system, tv/entertainment center, etc. But I won't be dumping thousands of dollars into NFC-enabled devices like that for a minor added convenience.
