SanDisk Makes Mobile Payment Even More Mobile

SanDisk today announced it is working with Philips to store NFC wallets, along with other user data, on MicroSD cards. SanDisk will add Philip's SmartMX technology to its TrustedFlash MicroSD cards. TrustedFlash stores users' DRM-protected and other personal content on the card allowing them to move it from phone to phone. SmartMX will provide the same functionality for mobile wallet data, which is normally stored on a phone's NFC chip. For carriers that want to conduct contactless payment trials with this card but don't have NFC-enabled handsets, SanDisk has partnered with Wireless Dynamics to bundle SD and Mini-SD cards with NFC chips built in that also have a slot for SmartMX enabled MicroSD cards to emulate the same functionality.
