iPhone case from Mophie integrates credit card reader
If there’s one area where a huge surge is going to occur very shortly, it’s going to have to be in the mobile payment sector. Mophie, an iPhone accessory maker, plans on unveiling a really neat case at CES which integrates a credit card reader. Although the iPhone case does take away from the iPhone's aesthetics, it’ll provide business users an option to allow credit card transactions on the iPhone with the aid of an application. Now is probably the ripe time for Mophie to unveil it – seeing that the mobile payment system hasn’t been fully grasped. Getting a head start is most likely the best scenario for them right now – plus the case will protect your iPhone of course. Ultimately it’ll come down to how usable it will become and how well it’ll be correctly positioned as a good business tool. We’ll have to wait until CES to visually see how successful this accessory will become.
