[NFC payment terminal ]
The release of the new generation iPhone-5 is around the corner ,there are plenty of rumors about the upcoming product from Apple ,and lot of expectations from the Fans.
Apple iPhone 5 would have a bigger screen than it’s precedents ,and more powerful processor ,Camera (nothing is confirmed with actual technical details yet),but it is rumored the missing part would be the NFC chip .
Using mobile phones for payments is a fast growing trend across America and Europe now , lot of super stores have implemented NFC payment terminals ,where you can pay by tapping your NFC enabled mobile phones .

Apple is believed to go slow in the implementation of heavy hardware specs ,as it has strong trust on it’s O/S . Due to the metal cover made for the phone ,the omission of NFC has been taken place ,as it kills the signals of NFC.
But there are two potential alternatives to NFC available including Bluetooth LE (low-energy) and QR code based payment tokens, but they’re not as fast and convenient as NFC.
Putting NFC will enable Apple to make lots of extra money , and Apple knows it better. Still the fate of NFC in Apple iPhone 5 is not known clearly 🙂
lets know everything on the 12th of September 2012 at the iPhone 5 launch ,hopefully !
