New Case Can Turn Your iPhone Into a Visa Credit Card

So, we already know that iPhone owners can use their phones to track girlfriends' menstrual cycles, treat acne, or rate their skills in the sack, but soon they'll be able to ditch their wallets and make contactless transactions thanks to DeviceFidelity's new In2Pay iPhone case.

The case, which contains an In2Pay microSD card, will allow users to wave their phone over any Visa PayWave terminal to pay for goods and services. The technology also comes with a mobile payment app that is supposed to protect customers from identity theft. Visa PayWave terminals can be found at approximately 32,000 retailers and Visa has plans to add many more.

So far, there's no word on when the case will be available to the public or how much it will cost. Trials are set to begin this quarter.
