Finally, mobile payments to begin testing this fall.


The pain of sitting by your computer and reading of tales depicting the awesomeness that mobile payments bring other countries will soon be pain no more. This fall, September specifically, small scale trials of mobile payment software, hardware, and services will run in NYC. Scheduled to run through the end of the year, the pilot program of sorts will give all the players involved (and believe me, there’s a ton) a chance to see how well the technology works out in the real world. Of course, they should already know how it works as Japan in particular has been using mobile payment technology for years.

Initially, the testers will have small chips “installed” in their phones. Whether it’s a messy open heart surgery type of install or a simple USB plugin isn’t specified. Though I’d side with the latter.

2005 tech is almost upon us folks. Are you excited at the possibility of leaving your wallet at home?
