Nothing too fancy here, but Samsung has reportedly developed a new single-chip RFID reader destined to hit mobile devices and cellphones in particular. Interestingly, Sammy didn't specific what it expected the chips to be used for, but we'll go ahead and assume the standard fare until informed otherwise. The new device was designed for a UHF range of 900MHz, and it weds an "analog front end, base-band modem, processor and a memory chip" on a 6.5- x 6.5-millimeter chip. Unfortunately, there's no mention of when we can expect these buggers to actually go commercial, but the outfit did note that initial batches would likely be on "card-type readers that plug into mobile handsets."
