    Well just found that iPad 2 will have NFC chip which helps us to make payment through our iPad. Not only with iPad 2 but it also said that it comes on iPhone 5 too! That's amazing news guys, it already available on Androids 2.3.

    Has Apple made an official announcement? No.

    And Android 2.3 is beside the point. It has to be in the hardware before it matters, even if the OS supports it. As far as I know those phones are not yet released.

    It will be nice, maybe, if more than a handful of venders, kiosks, or whatever support it. And you have a convenient and safe way to load the money to-from the phone. I'm not trying to rain on the parade, but this is a tech that will only be as good as the infrastructure. Right now it's a lot like buying an electric car, great if you live in just the right place.
