Leaked packaging shows Apple iPhone case that gives the phone NFC and support for Isis
Leak of retail packaging shows new case for the Apple iPhone that supports NFC and the Isis Mobile Wallet
At CES, a version of the case for both the Apple iPhone 4 and Apple iPhone 4s was revealed. The cases are expected to launch in March. While AT&T is involved in the release of the Cashwrap case, it is unknown whether the other two carriers involved in the Isis mobile payment service, T-Mobile and Verizon, will also offer the cases.
By using the case and installing the Isis Mobile Wallet app, you can store credit cards and loyalty cards, using them to pay your bill by tapping the iPhone on an Isis Mobile Payment terminal.

Boy, boy, boy... They got a ton of accessories for iPhones... .

Yeah and accessories add up, let's face it they just want to hog down as much money as possible.

Jesus just put a freaking NFC chip in the next one. Apple should have had it in the iPhone 5.

Do you use NFC on your phone❔ The only time I ever used it on mine is with that test NFC tag that it came with... Lol❕..
Oh, well.. I guess it'll be there when MS gets their act together..

Do you use NFC on your phone❔Yes I use it when connecting my phone to my RX100 II and Sony smart bluetooth handset SBH52.

I also use it quite a lot. NFC tag in the car, to switch on bluetooth, gps and navapp. NFC at work to make some changes. NFC in my bed room to put it on sleep mode, etc. So yeah, I do use it

Huh.. Maybe I should look into it more..

I know, I used to think NFC was for mobile payments only, but there is quite a lot you can do (especially with for example my philips Hue around the house).
This link talks about a few possibilties of NFC

Also handy, nfc in your business cards. They can automatically add your info as a contact on the smartphone. RapidNFC has a bunch of different types of NFC products and they are not expensive.

I don't use it at all. I have a cover on my L920, so can't I really use NFC unless I remove the cover.

What for? Nobody uses NFC anyway. Android manufactures need to let that mess go like they did with qwerty keyboards and flash.

No.. It'll be really useful one day soon.. As a matter of fact it's gonna take over like plastic took over paper.. This is the new way of doing things.. But, you're right, for now it's not a critical feature... YET❕

I use it because it can speed up and simplify connection to other devices.

I use Isis a lot. I get 20% rewards on my AMEX when used through Isis, so yeah...i use it a lot, which is why i switched from Apple to Android. By the way, unless you have the app, the case does you no good and as of right now Apple store does not offer Isis mobile wallet...so kind of pointless.

Hey that's Apple we're talking about.

Kind of ruins the looks of the phone with this attached.
Might even say, because of extra bulk, makes the iPhone look like a ATM, huge machine, tiny screen.

Apples own "NFC" is the new thing for them now. Thousands of stores are using it.
Btw, Airdrop rocks.

You mean ibeacons, I presume?
Didn't know so many stores are already using those devices, good for them :)
