    One of the new features built into Gingerbread is something called NFC (Near Field Communication). While many of believed this would allow your phone to transmit information to other devices, transforming it into a mobile payment machine, this is not the case. The NFC does only one way transmission and appears to function along the same lines as the bar code reader.

    Check out the video below of the Nexus S NFC Demo:

    I don't see how this can't be used as a credit card? I think its better this way no one can walkaround with some computer taking in everybodys financial information somehow. This way u swipe it u get a prompt if you would like to pay this person this much u hit yes it send the money over the internet the person at the cash register sees a prompt that the bill was paid and transaction complete.

    That makes sense. There isn't a very good explanation on the video, or the article.
    Thanks
