There's a new device that could replace your wallet for good, while still keeping your information safe from hackers. We've all heard of smartphones, even smart watches, but soon smart wallets will be hitting the market. Creators of the Wocket hope it will be in your pocket.
"This becomes your personal vault," said CEO Gino Perreira of NXT ID. Perreira claims the Wocket is designed to prevent identity theft. According to Travelers Insurance in Hartford, 40 percent of identity theft is caused by a lost or stolen wallet. The Wocket was tested by focus groups at the University of New Haven and Sacred Heart and fared well with students, according to Perreira. He added the batteries don't have to be charged, ever.

As more companies continue to develop and improve their smart technology, competition is steadily heating up as smartphones and digital wallets see increasing demand from consumers. Android smartphone margins are at risk as Google (NASDAQ: GOOG) standardizes Android's global footprint. While Google's smartphone strategy may be bad news for Android OEMs like Samsung, it could provide an opportunity for Microsoft's (NASDAQ: MSFT) Windows 8 and Apple Inc.'s (NASDAQ: AAPL) iOS to gain traction in the smartphone market.
