MasterCard to cater to developers with APIs, portal

External programmers will be able to build payment applications

MasterCard is launching a program for external developers interested in tapping into some of the credit card giant's internal payment and data services to create applications.

MasterCard will release open Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) and launch a portal for developers so that they can create e-payment applications.

The portal will have technical information, software development kits, sample code and testing sandboxes, as well as a discussion forum where MasterCard officials and external developers can interact.

A new group called MasterCard Labs is in charge of the Open API program. Interested developers can write to to obtain more information. Developers will go through a registration and approval process in order to participate.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
