Hypercom Corporation has announced the launch of its next generation M5000 mobile payment terminal with PCI PTS 2.1 security certification.
The new M5000 is a handheld mobile payment system with an integrated contactless reader that lets merchants accept any type of card payment anywhere, anytime. Initially supporting GPRS and Bluetooth connectivity, the first M5000 configurations are geared towards the needs of hotels, cafés and restaurants, as well as mobile merchants.
The M5000 is powered by a 266 MHz standard, 400 MHz optional processor, and includes up to 500MB of memory. The processor combined with a 3.5″ icon-based touch screen supports payment or non-payment applications. Additionally, the M5000 includes a software development toolkit designed to maximize development efficiency and applications portability across the entire Hypercom next generation portfolio.
William Rossiter, Vice President of Global Marketing for Hypercom Corporation, comments: “The M5000 is a technological advance that safeguards our customers’ investments in the fast-changing world of payment acceptance and opens the door for customers to generate value-added services.”
