Top 10 of 2010: Google enables QR coded mobile purchases on Android phones
[This was my eighth most popular X.com item last year.]
Earlier this summer Google announced an extension that enables mobile payments for Android phone users.
The extension bridges the divide between merchandise being purchased in a physical store, market, or expo and the customer’s desire to pay via their Android phone. Though physical goods are bought on the spot, the payment is made via Google Checkout using the merchant’s Store Gadget and the customer’s Android phone.
