iPhone Gets a Credit Card Reader in CES 2010


I love the convenience of online shopping in my bedroom, but it bugs me that most Filipino online sellers don’t have Paypal accounts or accept credit cards. Instead, they require you to pay through bank deposits or Globe outlets for Gcash, which kind of cancels out the convenience factor. US shoppers are getting an interesting iPhone accessory that will allow them to accomplish their online transactions while they’re on the go. On CES 2010, manufacturer Mophie will be unveiling a credit card reader for the iPhone. Just clip on to your iPhone, shop, an swipe! I wonder if it’s any good at keeping your credit card information private and preventing credit card fraud, but I suppose we’ll find out in a few days.

CES 2010 will be taking place on January 7 – 10 at Las Vegas, Nevada. This year, there are going to be over 2,700 exhibitors and lots of exciting new gadgets, which I’m looking forward to featuring in this blog!
