Kyocera Wireless and INSIDE Contactless have announced a global collaboration to integrate the INSIDE Contactless NFC solution for mobile payments in select prototype Kyocera mobile phones. As part of the collaboration, Kyocera will build NFC-enabled models enhanced with MicroRead, allowing the technology to be used in various banking pilot projects and initial adoption globally.
â€œWorking with INSIDE Contactless enhances the leadership position Kyocera has created in driving the adoption of NFC in the North American wireless market,â€ said Cheri de Lacy, vice president of Strategic Planning at KWC. â€œFuture NFC-enabled phones from Kyocera will include an in-depth range of unique advanced functionalities at the forefront of NFC technology.â€
â€œAfter the success of contactless payment in the US, INSIDE is delighted to see Kyocera stepping up to NFC as it will leverage the contactless infrastructure already deployed for m-payment. Having an NFC/CDMA solution is key for INSIDE to address the US market and this partnership adds a lot to our companyâ€, said Remy de Tonnac, CEO of INSIDE Contactless.
Looking at Inside Wireless, with MicroPass and investors such as Visa, it would seem this is a logical move for Kyocera, and even maybe Sanyo someday too..!!
