The world’s first wallet phone was the P506iC, which was commercially introduced by NTT-Docomo on July 10th, 2004 with a suite of applications linked to the wallet.
In the 10 years since 2004, wallet phones have developed and expanded greatly. While traditional Japanese wallet phones are still widely in use in Japan, Apple iOS and Android based smartphones are rapidly growing in marketshare and are expanding the universe of wallet phone applications in Japan and globally.
Wallet phones are mobile phones equiped to include bank cards, credit cards, house keys, company access control IDs, electronic cash, train tickets and many more functions. Wallet phones in principle can take over all functions which our wallet has.<br> Wallet phones enable mobile operators to enter new industries, especially the payment and credit card industries. For this reason wallet phones represent innovation and disruption for established industries, such as credit cards.
This report describes the technology and the eco-systems of wallet phones, and describes several application case studies richly illustred with photographs and descriptions of how wallet phones present value to consumers, and how wallet phones impact established industries.

 JAPANESE WALLET PHONES • Wallet phones are mobile phones (or smartphones) which include a multi-application IC which is both linked to the applications of the phone and which can communicate securely to external readers/writers via a Near-Field Communication antenna system • Wallet phones enable a great variety of functions: • Applications requiring high security: electronic money, tickets, mobile electronic credit card payments,ATM-cards, building access cards, employee ID cards etc • Low security applications: club membership, customer fidelity point cards etc • Wallet phones enable mobile operators to enter the credit card business via mobile phone based credit cards, and therefore enable mobile operators to open new business areas • The world’s first wallet phone was the P506iC, which was commercially introduced by NTT-Docomo on July 10th, 2004 with a suite of applications linked to the wallet. • In the 10 years since 2004, wallet phones have developed and expanded greatly.While traditional Japanese wallet phones are still widely in use in Japan, Apple iOS and Android based smartphones are rapidly growing in marketshare and are expanding the universe of wallet phone applications in Japan and globally. 2

 AND WHY 7
  • 8. (c) 2014 Eurotechnology Japan KK www.eurotechnology.com Japanese wallet phones (version 16) May 18, 2014 WALLET PHONES • Wallet Phones are mobile phones with built-in multi-application IC-chips, plus the near field communication (NFC) systems which enables the on-board chip to interact with a reader/writer terminal • In addition, for a complete wallet phone eco-system, JAVA applications and network infrastructure and specially developed reader/writer units at point of use (e.g. railway stations, store cash registers, POS, etc), and back-office systems and servers for transaction processing are required. • DoCoMo conducted public tests between December 2003 and June 2004 for 5000 users and introduced wallet phones commercially from July 2004. • We estimate that in mid-2007 about 30 million wallet phones are in use in Japan, while we estimate that about 50 million wallet phones will be in used by 2010 and we expect growth to continue without drastic changes 8
  • 9. (c) 2014 Eurotechnology Japan KK www.eurotechnology.com Japanese wallet phones (version 16) May 18, 2014 IMPLICATIONS FORTHE MOBILE CARRIER • Wallet phones will form part of the essential daily life infrastructure - unlike multimedia and music maybe addictive but are non-essential • Thus wallet functionality takes the carrier’s services from the periphery into the center of the customer’s lives • Carriers will move to a different business model: from charging for minutes and kilobytes, to management fees for authentication platforms, transaction platforms, identity management fees etc. 17

Clearly, commercial power helps…) 57

 (JANUARY - JUNE 2004) • As usual in Japan, before introducing wallet phones to the general public, DoCoMo tested wallet phones with 5000 “monitors” during a 6 months long testing period from January to June 2004. • The following section describes this testing phase of wallet phones. • Note that the transaction partners during the testing phase are not all exactly the same as those during the introduction phase to consumers from July 2004.Although we are not aware of an announcement by DoCoMo, we assume that some transaction partners either dropped out during testing, or postponed participation, while other new partners joined during the testing phase. • The following description of the testing phase gives a good indication of the likely development of wallet phones in the initial period of introduction. 114

  • 61. (c) 2014 Eurotechnology Japan KK www.eurotechnology.com Japanese wallet phones (version 16) May 18, 2014 VODAFONE WIRELESS IC-CARD PHONE • In response to DoCoMo’s development of I-mode/FeliCa wallet phonesVodafone (Japan’s third largest mobile carrier, now SoftBank, see: http:// www.eurotechnology.com/store/softbank/ ) initially announced the development of an alternative wireless card system. • Vodafone (now: SoftBank) seemed initially not to join DoCoMo’s “mobile FeliCa” system, but to develop an independent approach. • Vodafone (now: SoftBank) announced it’s own contactless IC-Card on May 6, 2004, about 6 months after DoCoMo started the field trials described elsewhere in the present report.Vodafone clearly still has to create the industry alliances, which DoCoMo already has achieved in Japan. • WhileVodafone (at that time under the name J-Phone) was the leader in Camera phones,Vodafone is now clearly the follower. However, that is not necessarily a bad thing, especially sinceVodafone is much stronger outside Japan than DoCoMo. It is quite likely thatVodafone will introduce these smartcard systems in Europe and elsewhere about 3-4 years down the road asVodafone has done for Camera Phones,Vodafone-Live! and other services and technologies. 179
  • 62. (c) 2014 Eurotechnology Japan KK www.eurotechnology.com Japanese wallet phones (version 16) May 18, 2014 VODAFONE WIRELESS IC-CARD PHONE • In 2004,Vodafone tested the J-SH53X mobile phone (by SHARP) with wireless smartcard functions with the following properties: • Card interface and antenna are built into the J-SH53X body • Smartcards, including flash memory are not built into the phone body but are pushed into a separate card slot. Smartcards can therefore be exchanged. • IC cards can have contact and no-contact interfacing • Two different card types have been tested/developed in cooperation with Hitachi: • For traffic applications and other business fields: JICSAP2.0, EEPROM: 32 KByte, Flash memory: 64 MByte • For finance, public administration and other business fields: ISO14443Type B, EEPROM: 32 KByte, Flash memory: 64 MByte 180

 ANNOUNCED MARCH 6, 2004 • Vodafone’s J-SH53X phone with wireless smartcard. • We expect that this system enables similar technical functions and applications to DoCoMo’s I-mode/ FeliCa system. • However, we have not yet seen the wide network of partners which DoCoMo has signed up in order to achieve market penetration. 181
  • 64. (c) 2014 Eurotechnology Japan KK www.eurotechnology.com Japanese wallet phones (version 16) May 18, 2014 VODAFONE’S WALLET PHONE STRATEGY • On March 6, 2004Vodafone announced it’s own contactless smart-card based wallet phone system, and exhibited the J- SH53X prototype wallet phone.This system appeared to be independently developed from DoCoMo/SONY mobile FeliCa, most likely based on Europe’s PHILIPS Mifare system • On February 24, 2005Vodafone announced to follow KDDI/AU in licensing the mobile FeliCa system from FeliCa Networks. 182

 WALLET PHONES • Wallet phones are mobile phones which include a multi-application IC which is both linked to the applications of the phone and which can communicate securely to external readers/writers via a Near-Field Communication antenna system • Wallet phones enable a great variety of functions: • Applications requiring high security: electronic money, tickets, mobile electronic credit card payments,ATM-cards, building access cards, employee ID cards etc • Low security applications: club membership, customer fidelity point cards etc • Wallet phones enable mobile operators to enter the credit card business via mobile phone based credit cards, and therefore enable mobile operators to open new business areas • Wallet phones can in principle store many if not all functions of wallets: cash, credit cards,ATM cards, train tickets, room keys, building access, membership cards etc.Today the memory or wallet phones is still limited, so that in reality not all these items can be stored at the same time in today’s wallet phones. Futher development of wallet phones is necessary until wallet phones can fulfill all the functions of our wallets • The world’s first wallet phone was the P506iC, which was commercially introduced by NTT-Docomo on July 10th, 2004 with a suite of applications linked to the wallet. • In the 10 years since 2004, wallet phones have developed and expanded greatly.While traditional Japanese wallet phones are still widely in use in Japan, Apple iOS and Android based smartphones are rapidly growing in marketshare and are expanding the universe of wallet phone applications in Japan and globally. 188
