In2Pay – The credit card reader for iPhone

I always find it very tedious and tasking to enter credit card details into a website or a mobile application. I wanted have a device like this and Visa has made this dream a reality. This device is still in prototype stage. But what it actually does is, when you bring your card near the device connected to your iPhone, it reads the card information and fills the card details in the application. The device is called “In2Pay” and its a iPhone case that plugs to the bottom of the iPhone via the dock connector. The case has a microSD card slot and using near-field communications chip the credit card detail is scanned. You have to download a payment app from the App store to use this device. So a combination of hardware interface and software, takes mobile commerce to the next level.
