Johannesburg, South Africa -- (SBWire) -- 05/12/2009 -- AcCells, a developer of contactless technology for the mobile payment industry, first introduced the mID at the GSMA Mobile Congress in February, 2009. This first demonstration of a working prototype is a very important milestone, bringing AcCells closer to launching its technology which will take the mobile commerce market forward in quantum leaps. The unveiling of the mID technology at the MMT Africa Conference and Expo will give those present the first glimpse of the mID’s unparalleled capabilities.

“We are very excited to share our development with the mobile commerce industry. Since the very beginning of this industry, many solutions have been introduced for both commercial and personal identification purposes,” said Eduardo Shoval, AcCells’ CEO. “The mobile commerce market is ready for a breakthrough solution that will help it to reach its expected goals and projections. Now, with AcCells’ solution, the market finally has a technology that will enable this market to meet all of its needs.”

AcCells' mobile identification device (mID) is capable of identifying any mobile handset and, when connected with mobile network operator’s server, allows users to make mobile payments directly and securely from their handset. The mID will use the existing network, server, and database to identify and authorize the user before any payment or transaction is complete. Once connected to the cellular network, the system uses the network’s high-security identification and authentication processes. The overall mobile payment process using the mID is fast, simple, and very secure.

The mID solution applies to every mobile phone on the market and does not require the user be proficient with any specific mobile service (SMS, WAP etc.). The mID’s diverse range of capabilities is certain to play a major role in the establishment of innovative applications for the mobile payment market.
