Incipio Cashwrap launches on AT&T; case turns your Apple iPhone into a mobile wallet
Just a few days ago, we showed you a leaked photo of the retail packaging for a case called the Incipio Cashwrap. Today, the iPhone accessory is available from AT&T. Supporting the Apple iPhone 5s, Apple iPhone 5, Apple iPhone 4s and Apple iPhone 4, the case is used in conjunction with the Isis Mobile Wallet app to give iPhone users the ability to tap on the Isis Mobile Payment terminal to make a payment. This is accomplished through the use of a micro-NFC chip embedded in the case, which has received "Made for iPhone" certification from Apple.

The Isis Mobile Wallet app will allow iPhone users to store loyalty reward cards from certain retailers, and specific bank-issued credit cards from American Express, Discover, MasterCard, and Visa. Information is stored on a tamper-resistant chip, according to Incipio, and the case is priced at $65. The Cashwrap can be ordered now from AT&T's online store with availability in the physical stores starting on January 27th. And we should point out that this is a very sturdy case that offers protection from shocks and drops while allowing the user access to all ports and controls on the handset.

While only AT&T is offering the Incipio Cashwrap for now, we expect to see T-Mobile and Verizon carry the case eventually since both are partners with AT&T on the Isis Mobile Payment system.
