The Incipio Cashwrap Case Gives Your iPhone NFC Capabilities

Incipio CashwrapThe Incipio Cashwrap case for iPhone launched on Friday, available online now and in AT&T stores next week for $69. The case includes a secure NFC, or near-field communications, chip that works for contactless payments on the ISIS system. ISIS is a U.S. payment program similar to Google Wallet and is backed by AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon. The Cashwrap launch comes just a few days after we spotted the product page with details; Incipio later pulled the web page in advance of today’s launch. There are versions of the Cashwrap for both the iPhone 4 /4S and iPhone 5 /5S models. Both editions come in a choice of three colors: Grey, Pink or Black. The case has a microUSB charging port on the side; Incipio also notes that a microUSB cable is included with the case. In other words, you won’t have access to the iPhone’s 30-pin or lightning port when using it.
