"NTT DoCoMo that combines the mobile Internet with smart card technology called "FeliCa cards." The new mobile phone service developed by Sony Corp. starts on a trial basis in Japan from Dec. 17, enabling cell phones embedded with the computer chip work as concert tickets, identification cards and electronic wallets.
