One cool thing is the fact that the card gets it’s Near Field Communication power from the reader, so it shouldn’t be a drain on the cell phone battery. This is a pretty awesome technology leap actually, and could really propel the smart card forward into a new age if it works as advertised. Of course, it will make losing your phone in a cab or at a party a tad more painful than at present. Such is the price for progress, eh?
