Sony Music Japan Launched Contactless Credit Card For Mobile Payment

Sony Music in Japan and Sony Finance International have joined to launch a possible first among the music circles, worldwide: it has launched a mobile payment credit-card co-branded for a popular Sony Music Japan artist Senri…The Visa card has a non-contact “FeliCa” IC chip (much touted as a contactless mobile payment technolgy…NTT DoCoMo pans to embed it in its new mobile phones shortly) embedded and enables users to use online credit card service “eLIO” and electronic pre-paid cash “Edy” so they can safely and easily purchase music CDs and artist novelty goods online.

The Japanese language site for this new card is here…does anyone understand Japanese out here? The Japanese translation via Babelfish is useless..
