So they're introducing something similar to Edy. Hardly changing the world. No doubt the iWallet will follow soon, with users thinking it's revolutionary and Apple reinventing the wheel once more.

Similar system already exists in Japan, doesn't it? Will this system became available in Japan? But I can't fined anything new.

And everyone in the States is still busy asking, "Why would I ever want a wallet in my phone?"

It will take a while for them to come around, but they will.

Hope Google can roll it out for Japan soon.

kaketama - Yeah, Japan has had it in convenience stores and plenty of other places for years. Nothing new in the world; just to the States (and maybe other countries that employ it).
