Coming up with an iPhone case that securely stores your information and doubles as a digital wallet is impressive enough–but iCache went above and beyond by also giving the iPhone case its own app, e-ink display, and yes–even a fingerprint scanner. Combining high-end digital security with high-tech hardware and software makes the Geode something special–and the folks judging the E-Tech awards at this year’s CTIA seemed to agree, awarding iCache’s creation twice (once for its software, the other for its hardware). Click past the jump for all of the details, and congrats to the folks at iCache; not just for winning the awards, but also for getting us that much closer to a world without “pocket bulge.”
CTIA E-Tech Awards
New Orleans, LA – May 10, 2012 – iCache Inc, the premier global technology leader in the mobile payments industry, is thrilled to announce Geode, the secure digital wallet for iPhone, won first place in two categories at the CTIA E-Tech Awards: Mobile Application in Mobile Commerce, Shopping and Rewards and Mobile CE Accessories. Winners were chosen based on innovation, functionality, technological importance/impact, implementation and overall “wow” factor.
“iCache is deeply honored to be recognized in this exemplary manner by such a well-respected organization as CTIA,” stated Jon Ramaci, CEO, iCache Inc. “As CEO, I am thankful to have such a wonderful team and set of partners who are enabling us to make convenient and secure mobile payments a reality for all consumers in the next 30 days. Life is Good.”
The Geode system features an app and an iPhone case with a fingerprint scanner, e-ink display and patented rewriteable GeoCard. The Geode consolidates the user’s credit, debit and loyalty cards into one simple, secure, universally accepted solution eliminating the need for bulky wallets. The Geode app is secured by a biometric reader that can only be accessed by the user’s fingerprint, decreasing the chances for credit card fraud. Additionally, Geode is accepted everywhere and allows transaction processes to remain the same – meaning no new infrastructure is required and retailers do not need to purchase new equipment.
“It’s great to bring the physical and virtual worlds together for mPayments through the Geode,” stated Erik Ross, CSO, iCache Inc.
iCache’s Geode will be available June 2012.
