Kuala Lumpur -- Fifth Media announced that they are introducing a new mobile device that has the capability of reading ISO7816 chips embedded in contact Smartcards. The device is unique in that it is truly portable, small enough to fit into a shirt pocket, so that it is ideal for people who are mobile and often perform their work outside the traditional workplace. Built on the Microsoft Windows CE .NET operating system, the AXIA A108 Smartcard Reader PDA Phone is also a tri-band GSM/GPRS mobile phone with full PDA capabilities.

Meanwhile, the device's processing power coupled with its GPRS connectivity facilitates information processing and immediate transfer to back-end systems.
