swipe it

Looking to do business or personal transactions on your iPhone? Macally’s Swipe It Reader is a hunking piece of plastic that attaches to your iPhone and enables credit card payments through its custom Swipe It application, similar to the Square payment system that was recently launched. The reader supports Vista, AMEX, Discover, and MasterCard, and it encrypts all data as its sent over either a 3G or Wi-Fi connection. Looks like carrying this thing in your pocket won’t be easy, but the business uses are impressive.

Pricing and availability for the Swipe It Reader are currently unavailable.
