Verifone, the company behind payment terminals found in millions of stores, has announced a new mobile point of sale (mPOS), the PAYware Mobile e355. Designed to help companies deploy mobile devices in their stores, the PAYware Mobile is meant to outlast current phones and tablets, adaptable to changes in form factor. It accepts multiple payment types, including magnetic stripe, EMV, and NFC payments such as Apple Pay.
From Business Wire:
The PAYware Mobile e355, the newest mPOS terminal in the Verifone Mobile suite of products, frees merchants from consumer technology upgrade cycles and adapts to multiple OS options. It is a flexible, long-lasting device that can accommodate different form factors and outlive smartphone and tablet models. This enables merchants to make long-term investments in mPOS, at a much lower cost of ownership. Furthermore, it supports all of the major OS options, including Android, iOS and Windows.
Verifone expects the PAYware Mobile e355 to be available in late summer 2015.
