Isis, PayPal competitor?
Isis is probably the competitor that PayPal would most like beat. They have a big start in the mobile market with diffferent carriers.

Re: Is this regional?
@Lorna I haven't noticed any in my part of NY either, though I have seen a few places that allow Google Wallet payments.

Is this regional?
I do a fair amount of shopping in the greater Boston area and don't recall seeing one of these payment terminals. Are retailers limiting the rollouts to certain areas?

And, do you think Apple will add native NFC support in the next iPhone? Otherwise, it's hard to see how Isis can really go mainstream.
