Macworld: Hands On With The Mophie Marketplace iPhone Payment System
With all the buzz about iPhone-based credit card payment systems, we made sure to stop by Mophie‘s booth to get a look at the Mophie Marketplace. It’s essentially an iPhone case with a built in credit card reader that works with a third-party app to provide the functionality. The coolest thing about the Marketplace demo was that they were actually using it to sell Juice Pack Airs at the booth. We thought the system was so cool that we got a personal demo of how it all works:
Mophie hopes to have the Marketplace hardware available in mid-April and there should be several companion apps available for it when it drops. They haven’t pinned down a price yet, but we’ll be sure to report back when we know more!
