iPhone Gets RFID For Quick Retail Purchase Opportunities
iCarte is a snap-on device for the iPhone to allow it to receive RFID signals.Â 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.Â Such as walking past a movie theater and you would be asked to download the trailer for an upcoming movie.Â 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.
