Credit Card Payment Via iPhone

15 12 2011

The new year started and still we talk about iPhone. With the start of 2010, new feature are added to iPhone for its users which is not only attracting new customers but also retaining the old ones.

Twitter co-founder, Jack Dorsey has started up a new company called Square. Square has introduced a device which will be used on iPhone. Are you wondering what the function of this device is?

This device will work while attaching on the headphone jack of iPhone and the feature can be said to exchange money. It will enable the users to execute their credit transactions via iPhone. This device does not require any installation and works directly after it is plugged-in with iPhone. It made the credit card payment easier. No matter who you are and where you are, at home, office, walking through a street, in a garden, or even a desert, you can easily make you credit card payments just by plugging-in the device with your iPhone.

According to Dorsey, he got the idea of introducing this device nearly a year ago. He knew a glass artist who lost his $2,000 only because his customer paid him through credit card which he was unable to accept. Then Dorsey though to make this facility available to all via iPhone.  This device is actually a credit card reader which reads the credit card and turns your handset in a credit processing terminal.  It is really a big business solution. When Apple released iPhone, even they may have no idea that their gadget will become a credit processing terminal to the business people. This innovation will really prove effective for the business owners. They can proceed their credit transactions while they are anywhere without dropping the response or dilatory.

Motorola Flipout’s unique features include a diminutive size, quirky design and the best of all, a hardware QWERTY keyboard. It is offering outstanding features and social networking is one of its prominent elements. First noticeable thing about Flipout is that how small it is. It is a square of just 67mm on its side.

Key Features of Flipout:

  • Exceptionally compact QWERTY messenger
  • GPS chip, A-GPS
  • Standard 3.5 mm audio jack
  • Flash support in the web browser
  • Office document viewer
  • Android OS v2.1 with MOTOBLUR UI v1.5
  • CIF (352 x 288 pixel) video recording @ 30fps
  • Excellent social networking integration
  • microSD slot, bundled with a 2GB card
  • Five-row QWERTY keyboard
  • TI OMAP 3410 600MHz processor; 512 MB of RAM
  • 3 MP autofocus camera with geotagging
  • 2.8″ 256K-color 320×240 pixel capacitive touchscreen; multitouch support

  • XviD support (but no DivX)
  • microUSB port (charging)
  • CrystalTalk PLUS noise-cancellation with a dedicated microphone


There are some disadvantages, too!

  • Uncomfortable grip for taking pictures
  • Poor display quality
  • QVGA resolution limits the choice of apps
  • No secondary video-call camera
  • 17mm thick is a bit much
  • microSD slot under the battery cover
  • Unacceptable camera issues from a retail test unit
  • No smart and voice dialing

There is really a cool feature in its music player that it is able to automatically find the lyrics of the song playing and keeps them in sync like a karaoke machine. It is very quick to find an audience. It has got a bigger screen than the Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 mini pro too unlikely to amaze owners of 4.3 monsters but its actually the same size and resolution as the HTC Tattoo. Motorola Flipout has inspiring internals; its hardware can make it bound to the next page to see what we thought of it.
