    Went into my local Starbucks today and freaked out the barista. Pulled out my Z10 on Rogers with the CIBC mobile payment and tapped to pay. She was giving me the what the heck are you doing look then her till said payment approved.
    Priceless.
    Try that with an iPhone.

    Did the same at my local Tim Hortons with the latest Timmies app. She said this is the first I've ever seen this.

    Yup, I've amazed the Starbucks and Tim Hortons staff twice each. Second time with the Tim Hortons today. I always ensure that I show them the front of the phone so they read the BlackBerry logo. I love it.

    This is NFC payment, right?
    I think Android has NFC, too. But maybe the payment method is not so common, that's why the Barista freaks out.

    I live in third world country, I think NFC Payment might take much much longer here.

    On a related note, if Apple doesn't get on board with NFC, they're idiots. A year from now this will be a common and preferred method of payment.

    They have something called iBeacon which is already been taking off for them.

    So what major retailers are equipped with iBeacon. Most of them are already set up with NFC tap to pay. I have high hopes for BBM Money and hope that it's on John Chen's radar as a potential huuuuge, game changing moneymaker.

    Sadly, there is truth to that. But NFC is at least handy if it's used.

    Really? In one year from right now NFC is going to be the preferred method of payment? Really? As in you actually believe this? Okay....

    No, you're wrong.

    what makes you so sure you are right? just writing you're wrong does not make You Right. NFC on debit and credit cards are pretty much the norm right now and with it being added to almost all phones, well then I would have to think the other person is Right and You are Wrong.

    Yup, there aren't many places I can't pay with NFC technology of some kind. I don't have any equipped credit or debit cards because without being able to turn them off the security model sucks. My smartphone I can turn off.

    I wouldn't say "preferred", but I think it will definitely be popular. Isis seems to be off to a decent start. Google Wallet started slow but seems to be making progress lately, at least in the US.

    The infrastructure is coming along. There are definitely many millions of terminals already deployed and pretty much any recent PoS can be upgraded easily.

    The negative is that it takes coordination between many parties to make it work for a given customer at a given location. This is why BB's taps only work at a couple of merchants in Canada, or a particular combination of bank/phone network. I think that will start to go away as this becomes more standardized.

    So I think if we look at this again in Dec 2014, NFC will be quite popular for payment. iBeacon, IMO, is useful for purposes other than actual payment.
