Apple's next big thing, an analyst speculates, is more likely to be mobile payments
I’m not even sure about “years.” See Tell me again: Why do we think Apple will make a TV set?
As near as I can tell, Moskowitz is the first mainstream Apple analyst to take a firm stand against the imminent launch of what others are calling iTV.
Interestingly, he thinks Apple’s next big thing might be a mobile payment service he has dubbed iPay. “With this platform,” he writes, “we theorize that Apple users ultimately could pay for goods and services using NFC [near field communication] technology embedded in their iPhone or iPad and tied to an Apple account.”
That seems doable.
