Wireless Wallet trial
Cellular South and Kyocera Wireless will begin the first-ever community-wide Wireless Wallet trial that allows participants the opportunity to use the technology at multiple retail locations in multiple trial cities. Participants will be equipped with a Wireless Wallet-enabled Kyocera cell phone - giving them a new, high-tech kind of purchasing power. The phone acts as a digital credit card that allows Cellular South customers to make payments and purchases by simply tapping it against a NFC-enabled wireless reader. The company plans to complete the trial by August 2007, with an anticipated widespread consumer roll-out of Wireless Wallet in Q4 2007.

"Kyocera has proven to be a great supplier in the past by delivering the devices and technology customers demand. We are looking forward to working with them again to make the Wireless Wallet consumer trial an success."
