San Jose, CA - June 27, 2007 - Verifone Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: PAY) today announced that its MX870 multimedia payment system is now fully integrated to IBM’s SurePOS Application Client Server Environment (ACE) Version 5.0 and Version 6.0, the strategic point-of-sale application for IBM Retail Store Solutions in North America. The MX870 is the first PCI PED-approved large-screen payment solution supported on SurePOS ACE.
