Samsung Phones To Include Philips Contactless Chips

Royal Philips Electronics announced today that South Korea-based Samsung Electronics will introduce cell phones that contain Near Field Communication (NFC) contactless smart card chips from Philips.

They could allow users to make contactless payments at stores,car parks or transit gates, receive digital content or gain entrance to secure buildings by simply waving their phone near another NFC-equipped device, Philips says. The technology is also compatible with the ISO 14443 Type A standard for contactless smart cards and with Sony’s FeliCa smart card technology, according to Philips.
