iPhone Gets RFID For Quick Retail Purchase Opportunities

iCarte is a snap-on device for the iPhone to allow it to receive RFID signals.  This is great for all sorts of on-the-go applications.

The iCarte could be used for micro payments, such as public transportation payments or vendy machine purchasing.

Another application is getting RFID signals for promotional material.  Such as walking past a movie theater and you would be asked to download the trailer for an upcoming movie.  Or past a music store and you can get a sample of the latest releases.

Makes you wonder what the world will be like in a couple years, doesn’t it?

UberGizmo rumors that Apple might integrate an RFID feature in the next release, but who knows.
