Alcatel-Lucent video shows Nexus S acting as POS terminal and payments device

Alcatel-Lucent‘s Touchatag team has produced a video demonstrating the use of a Google Nexus S as both a POS terminal and as a payments device.

The video shows funds being transferred from a customer’s Nexus S to a second Nexus S, acting as a waiter’s point-of-sale terminal, using Alcatel-Lucent’s Mobile Wallet Service.

To make the payment, the waiter enters the amount to be paid into his Nexus S, the two phones are then brought into close proximity with each other to initiate the transaction and the customer is then able to check the balance and the transaction history of his mobile wallet on his phone.
