visa-devicefidelity.jpgVisa and contactless technology company DeviceFidelity are working together to produce a solution for using the iPhone for Visa mobile payments.


The NFC (Near Field Communication) technology company has produced a microSD solution for mobile devices and is now attempting to target the iPhone market using a protective case that will cover the iPhone and incorporates a built-in microSD card with Visa's payWave software pre-loaded.


Currently, it is expected to be released this summer and will be compatible with the iPhone 3G and 3GS. The information appeared via a Press Release on the MarketWatch website before being pulled.


Apple has been rumoured to be testing NFC technology in prototype iPhones, so it may well be that the iPhone 4G/HD may come with the required technology built-in without the need for a protective case when it's announced, expected to be in early June.
