Forget about credit cards, cash or ID. Your smartphone is going to be your wallet very soon. Amazon, Google, Apple, Microsoft and few others are working on the ‘NFC (near field communication) mobile payment technology’ to change the future of payment systems. NFC allows wireless transfer of data over short distances between two devices. This makes it an ideal technology for financial transactions between a phone and/or a device at any store. NFC is still in development phase in the U.S. But in Japan you can pay for almost anything by simply swiping your phone. No need for credit cards, cash or even ID. This year NFC might take off in the U.S., and many companies are working on their own NFC payment solutions.
Sir Howard Stringer, CEO of Sony, accidentally told that his company will be supplying image sensors for Apple‘s iPhone 5. In an interview with the Wall Street Journal’s Walt Mossberg, Howard Stringer was talking about earthquake damage to 15 of the Sony’s factories in Japan, and mentioned that a camera sensor made in one of those plants is on its way to Apple, and that sensor would be delayed because of the quake and tsunami. That confirms the delay of iPhone 5 launch rumor. It is not clear that Sony is building an 8-megapixel image sensor that will go into the iPhone 5, but since Sony is currently not manufacturing any image sensors for Apple, this confirmed that Sony plans to supply components of the iPhone 5.
