NTT docomo - Device for iPhone to transform it into mobile wallet compliant device

Unlike a traditional mobile phone or Android smartphone, iPhone doesn't support mobile wallet services. But, NTT docomo made it possible to join those services using your iPhone.

They are going to release Osaifu Keitai Jacket 01, a device for iPhone that transforms the iPhone into a mobile wallet compliant device.  

Osaifu Keitai Jacket 01 has a mobile FeliCa IC chip built in. Simply install the dedicated application called Osaifu Link to your iPhone and pair it up with the device, and then you will be able to start registering and using multiple mobile wallet related services, including electronic money, loyalty programs and boarding passes.

Even if you get a new iPhone, you can use the same mobile wallet with the new iPhone without migrating the past data.
