of the action on the e-wallet front is focused on cellphones
South Korea's Safa has decided to concentrate on the other
device you don't leave home without: a digital
audio player. The company's T1000 has a built in T-Money card, which can be used for purchases at participating
institutions. As with other near-field payment systems, you can just wave your DAP in the general direction of the
payment terminal for it to register. It's an interesting idea, but we'd probably prefer to add both audio and payment
functions to our cellphone, rather than pick up a DAP specifically designed to work as a wallet.
