Display Card has its own keyboard and LCD
MasterCard has been showing off a next-generation credit card called the Display Card. The name Display Card comes from the fact that it has a small LCD in the upper right-hand corner. In the lower left-hand corner is a small numerical keypad.
The credit card is designed for increased security and combines the functionality of a secure dongle that generates one-time passwords with a credit card, allowing users to carry one device rather than two.
The idea with the Display Card is that the little LCD will display the one-time password needed to complete certain online banking transactions. In the future, the card's capabilities can be expanded, and the small display can be used to show other things such as accumulated reward points, last transaction amounts, and even the credit card balance. The card is expected to be available from participating banking institutions in January.
"We brainstormed on ways to make it convenient and yet secure for customers," said V Subba from Standard Chartered Bank, which is collaborating with MasterCard.
"The question was: instead of sending customers another bulky token, could we replace something which already exists in the customer's wallet? That was when credit, debit and ATM cards immediately came to mind."
The first customers likely to get the new Display Card are expected to be account holders at the Standard Chartered Bank locations in Singapore. There's no indication of when these cards might come to the U.S. or other countries.

That's where those 5" phones eg Galaxy Note 2 comes in with NFC... Unfortunately not everyone has a big pocket in their pants. A larger size card probably wouldn't fit. More card size area means more material cost and more environmental waste.
