Snapper-enabled smartphone to hit shelves
Wed, 02 May 2012 12:45p.m.
New Zealand’s first Snapper card-enabled smart phone will go on sale tomorrow, allowing users to pay for buses, trains and taxis without a separate card.
LG has unveiled the Optimus Net which 2 Degrees will stock exclusively.
The phone uses a technology called near-field communication and allows transactions to be processed wirelessly when the device is brought within close proximity to a receptor.
Users will be able to check and top up their Snapper balance on the phone and it can be disabled if it is lost or stolen.
LG spokesperson Richard Bryant says the device will revolutionise the way people use their phone and pay for services.
Mr Bryant says the Optimus Net is the beginning of the ‘mobile wallet’.
