Payments via smartphone
Smartphones are versatile devices – they store our music and photos, not to mention our contact lists. They let us surf the Internet, and most telephone calls are made with mobile devices. Now smartphones can also serve as mobile wallets. Everything that we used to carry in our wallets or pocketbooks can now be stored in our cell phones – in virtual terms, of course: driver’s licenses, ID cards, credit cards and money. Deutsche Telekom and TNS surveyed consumers in Germany and the United States to find out what they think about this payment technology – and what they expect from it.
