PayPal demos new smartphone payment feature
PayPal today demonstrated a new payment feature that lets users tap two mobile phones together to transfer money.
The new widget, which is currently only available on Samsung's Android Nexus S phones, uses near-field communications technology. PayPal plans to bring "NFC payments to life on the Android platform," said Laura Chambers, senior director of mobile operations, in a PayPal blog post.
Chambers showed off the new feature at today's MobileBeat conference in San Francisco.
