YubiKey NEO token supports OpenPGP, though it is disabled by default:

At present YubiKey does not support key import, only generation without possibility to export, which limits its usability.

Probably YubiKey NEO should be listed as another vendor of OpenPGP cards? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 09:55, 13 February 2013 (UTC)

Actually the term "OpenPGP card" refers to an specification of such a card. There are actually a few vendors who use this specification for their cards. However, in most cases those cards are not available for the general audience. We developed the specification back in 2003 to make it easier to learn about smartcards. Back then only the expensive ISO standard documents were available and for almost everything signing an NDA was required. Changing this was one of the goals. The other was to make acquiring smartcards affordable. Dd9jn (talk) 14:26, 14 August 2013 (UTC)
