Mobile Wallet In America

in General Discussion edited January 2014
Sweet. Via Wireless Watch Japan PC World is reporting that a couple companies are running e-cash try-outs.


According to PC World, Cellular South in Jackson, Miss., joined USA Technologies in Malvern, Pa., this week to announce a two-city consumer trial of WirelessWallet, a service that will let consumers make m-commerce payments from a cell phone. They will use handsets from Kyocera that will act as a digital credit card enabling customers to tap & go their phone on a NFC terminal to make purchases.

The trial involves 75 customers who will test the concept at 50 retail locations in Memphis and Jackson, according to a statement from the Cellular South. Following completion of the trial this August, a rollout is scheduled for early 2008, the companies said.

Well, it would be nice for North America to get some decent mobile phone technology for once and I, for one, can't wait to get this up here in Canada.

I think, however, that the iPhone would require a hardware upgrade to make the feature work.
