No NFC on the iphone? Bolt-on a case and carry on regardless


Another bank has now decided the iphone is going to bloody well have nfc whether they like it or not and gone for the bolt-on option of adding an nfc equipped case to the iphone.

"U.S. Bank is introducing the service in Beta with new FlexPerks® Travel Rewards Visa Signature® account holders before introducing it more broadly in 2013."

Says it's press release.

Commonwealth Bank of Australia announced their iCarte based scheme 14 months ago

Royal Bank of Scotland announced their Touchpay Visa enabled scheme last October.

Jonathan Jensen had some issues with iCarte as a concept last week What do you think of Jonathan's point of view? is this an acceptable workaround?

Why are we having to workaround at all?
