See Your Mobile Phone as Your Credit Card

Let's file this in the "it was only a matter of time" folder ...

Here's a report from the 'Beeb about how Japan's big mobile phone operator, NTT DoCoMo, is teaming up with McDonalds to offer electronic payments and special promotions for mobile phone users, such as paying for that Big Mac.

(Or maybe that should be a double cheesburger?)

Japanese mobile phone owners are leading the way in this area, paying for food and train tickets via their handsets.

(Aren't micro-payments beautiful? At least until the phone bill arrives ...)

And when will we catch up (no pun intended ) with the rest of the world?
