Square to land in T-Mobile's retail stores, used by Obama's reelection campaign for fundraising
T-Mobile's Square offer is part of its initiative to help small businesses, and accepting payments on the go certainly falls within the realms of that project.
Activists with the Obama reelection campaign, for example, have been accepting donations via the Square accessory with their phones or tablets, bragged the company. Those who contribute still need paperwork given, as is the law, but it certainly seems that Square is heading towards wider adoption now.

Even though I'm more politically conservative, I find the bit about Obama interesting. Square or other mobile payments for political campaigns allow for a new revenue stream of smaller contributions from people that otherwise might not get involved.

Just for the record, Wireless Zone (Verizon Wireless Premium Retailers) has been offering Square readers in their stores since November...
