Coin finally comes clean about delays

Coin, that awesome payment card that can replace all your physical cards including credit, debit, gifts and loyalty cards, last week announced that it wasn’t ready to ship the final product to backers as previously promised. In the process, the company disguised the announcement as an extended nationwide beta program that would be available to backers who choose to help, and to pay an extra fee on top of their existing pledges, shifting focus from the actual bad news. Since then Coin has come clean to backers about the product launch delay, Droid-Life reports.

Video: Forget smartphones and NFC, ‘Coin’ is the future of payments

Companies are trying as hard as they can to convince us that smartphone-based payment systems are the future, but we have seen little thus far to convince us that this new technology will break out anytime soon. Tap-to-pay smartphone solutions require retailers to update their point of sale (POS) terminals, and mobile payment solutions providers are having trouble coming up with a solid system that works across platforms.
