A few days ago we learned that the main operators in Spain have agreed to jointly use a system called payment by mobile NFC (Near Field Communication). Today we learned that Google is already making the necessary tests to use the NFC system to be paid over a cash register by mobile phone use.
The NFC is based on a wireless communication protocol a short distance (at least 20 cm) to connect two devices in the range of 13.56MHz (so no license required to transmit). To be necessary that the devices are very close together, this system provides perfect security to enable electronic payment and identification systems, or to transfer data as a contact card simply touching mobile phones. Addition, NFC technology is compatible with RFID tagging, which opens up a vast and exciting applications.
Apparently this payment system will be tested in a thousand stores in San Francisco and New York in less than four months. The NFC payment system allows a mobile device with built that can collect user data at a short distance to proceed with payment. In fact this system already built wireless payment cards.
This new payment system is going to test Google using cash registers that are able to read this data. At the moment only With the Samsung Nexus, is First Android phone with NFC. Nokia also announced that all bear Smartphones soon this technology, and Apple recently hired an expert in NFC (even if they denied rumors that the iPhone 5 incorporate NFC system).
In February, the CEO de Google Eric Schmidt, said in an interview with The New York Times that the company was working to expand its offering to advertisers using NFC chips. The service was intended to provide commented ads and offers articles on the point of sale.
