NTT DoCoMo to Launch Revolutionary Mobile Wallet Service
Posted: 17-Jun-2004 [Source: NTT DoCoMo]

[FeliCa service for mobile wallet applications to launch in July using new i-mode smart card handsets.]

Tokyo -- NTT DoCoMo, Inc. and its eight regional subsidiaries today announced the July 2004 launch of the i-mode FeliCa Service for mobile wallet applications, which will be used in combination with the company's first four i-mode smart-card handsets -- three 2G mova 506iC series handsets and the 3G FOMA F900iC handset -- which also will be launched in early July.

DoCoMo's revolutionary new service and smart-card handsets can be used for a variety of unprecedented functions, including train pass, debit card (electronic money), credit card and personal identification card, applications previously possible only with IC-equipped cards.

The handsets are equipped, for example, to use Sony's Edy e-money system for purchases at 9,000 participating shops in Japan. Current balances and payment records can be viewed using the handsets.

Initially, 39 mobile service providers will offer m-wallet functions via the i-mode FeliCa Service. Customers will go to the providers' websites and download i-appli(tm) applications to use these functions with their DoCoMo i-mode smart-card handsets.

DoCoMo previewed the i-mode FeliCa Service for six months beginning last December using mobile phones equipped with Sony Corporation's FeliCa smart card technology.
