Lenovo has announced that it plans to integrate even more NFC technology into a slew of ThinkPad tablets and Ultrabooks later this year.
Selected ThinkPad tablet and Ultrabook models coming later in 2013 will sport contactless NFC credit card payment methods, according to Lenovo reps at this year’s Expand conference in San Francisco, California. Currently, Lenovo is still trying to work with payment processors to make the NFC payment feature more feasible.
NFC-enabled models are currently unknown, but, if things pan out as planned, Lenovo consumers will be able to go about purchasing goods online with ease by simply tapping a credit card.
NFC payment processing via smartphones are still catching on, and with features like Google wallet continuing to amass more and more users, it should only be a matter of time before those same NFC features become more widespread in other mobile gadgets.
