Default Don't You Want NFC on Your Smartphone?

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://www.tuaw.com/2011/06/17/more-iphone-than-android-owners-want-mobile-wallets/' target='_blank'>http://www.tuaw.com/2011/06/17/more...mobile-wallets/</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"Google may have beaten Apple to NFC, but a recent survey reveals that only 24% of Android users are actually interested in using the technology to make purchases. iPhone owners are still waiting for an NFC-enabled model, but 40% can't wait to pay in a store using their phone."</em></p><p><img height="445" src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/at/auto/1308374385.usr105634.jpg" style="margin-left: 70px; margin-right: 70px;" width="460" /></p><p>I'm one of those 40%. However 70% of the 1,000 people surveyed have no interest in mobile wallets, or they don't even understand what that means. All I know is I can't wait until I can use my iPhone to pay for more than Starbucks coffee. How about you, are you chomping at the bit to get NFC and mobile payment ability or is it something you have little interest in?</p>
