PayPal has shown their new peer-to-peer
NFC


payment system at
MobileBeat 2011


today, using two Android powered

phones. The premise is simple -- open the app on both phones, enter the payment amount on one, and bump them together. After the buzz, enter account details, and the payment is processed. Afterwards, the normal email receipts are generated and sent out, just like we did it in the old days.

There's no firm date when to expect this, but PayPal says "late this summer". Another compelling reason for manufacturers to put NFC capabilities in their new models, or just a security concern? Either way, we'll find out soon enough. Hit the break to see a demo video.
