A built-in NFC chip may not be a deciding factor when purchasing an Android device provided a microSD card reader makes the list of specs. Moneto has developed a microSD card with a built in NFC transmitter that, when combined with the Moneto app, allows users to make contactless payments at any location accepting MasterCard PayPass. The NFC microSD card compliments Moneto’s existing NFC iPhone case and will cost $30 when it hits shelves sometime in Q2. Support will be on a per device basis, with more handsets added as the year progresses.
