Thursday, 01 August, 2002

Sandisk and Toshiba have announced the creation of a mobile commerce (MC) extension standard for flash memory cards. The standard will enable the implementation of security functions in addition to the standard memory features that are already supported by such cards.

Adding these security capabilities will enable flash memory cards to be used in applications such as: secure data transfer, content purchase and electronic payment.

It is also claimed the standard would enable flash memory cards usage for stock trading, storage of personal medical records and the purchase of entertainment content such as music and video.
