iPhone 5 NFC Plans Discussed: Video
You may or may not be aware that Apple is rumoured to be looking at Near Field Communication known as NFC for their future tech gear meaning future iPhone users will be able to pay via iPhone for goods and services, presumable once the iPhone 5 launches.
And the other day Jon Rettinger of Technobuffalo spoke with CNBC about the iPhone 5 and NFC and we have that interview for your viewing pleasure below. Apparently there’s quite a bit of evidence that Apple is very interested in NFC with Apple apparently purchasing NFC related equipment, and hiring an NFC expert, and of course filing several patents for NFC.
Jon says that although Apple isn’t the first into the NFC game they do have the edge due to market penetration, and that its almost a sure thing that smartphones are going to change the way we use our wallets in the near future.
So rather than me go on about it all just jump on down and hit that play button to check out the video, and feel free to let us know if you agree that NFC is the way forward, would you be prepared to swap your credit card for mobile payment via the iPhone 5? Or do you think NFC is just a flash in the pan that will never really take off?
