Socket Compact Flash Mag Stripe Credit Card Reader

I had a partner ask me how they could potentially read credit cards using a Windows Mobile Pocket PC device – whilst there are some great purpose built devices for doing this – I also noticed that Socket recently announced a Compact Flash Mag Stripe Reader

You can then use this reader to read ID cards, credit cards and other mag stripe based cards.

Check out the press release here:

    Who announced it?

  2. As Jason says, one of a few devices for doing this and a neat addition. Not suitable for Chip & PIN though! If you can persuade your bank to let you take Mag Stripe transactions, we have everything else you need to transform your Windows Mobile device.
