  • BlackBerry Bold 9900 Used In Canada's First Mobile Credit Card Payment


    Some pretty big tech news was made today in Canada, as the first mobile payment was made using Rogers and CIBC's app "SureTap" on a BlackBerry Bold 9900 in Toronto. This service allows customers to make purchases of up to $50 using an NFC-enabled smartphone.


    The aforementioned Bold 9900 and Curve 9360 are currently the only Rogers phones that will support this feature, but we can definitely see this starting to pick up steam already. NFC technology is still very, very new and is definitely taking time to incorporate into the mainstream, but this is still just the beginning.
    Today's event took place at Tim Horton's in Toronto and enlisted the help of Canadian Olympic gold medalist Simon Whitfield to complete the purchase of some coffee. I still need to get up there and try it some time.
