September 20, 2004—ViVOtech and Philips have partnered to make cashless purchases using RFID-enabled cell phones a reality. Using a protocol called Near Field Communication (backed by the likes of Nokia, Philips, Samsung, and Sony), the system allows users to swipe their cell phones in front of NFC readers to make purchases of popular consumer items like movie tickets, fast food, and digital content.

Implementations in select U.S. markets are planned before year's end.
