ROAM Data just launched the world’s first encrypted audio coupled card reader for BlackBerry devices, which comprises approximately 30% of the smart phone market in the US. ROAM enables the millions of merchants with BlackBerry devices to securely swipe customers’ payment cards with reduced transaction fees by conveniently plugging-in ROAM’s low cost reader into the audio jack. This unique swiper solution called ROAMpay Swipe is the latest in a series of mCommerce innovations brought to market by ROAM Data.

This is probably a great advancement in the sales industry. It can make sales transactions much easier and available anywhere. As for personal use, maybe you can use this product to force your friends to pay you back money you lent them when they use the “no cash” excuse. Either way, what I think is really cool about this product is the fact that it connects to your BlackBerry through the audio jack. If anyone has tried out this product, let us know more about how it works and your thoughts.
