Bell Mobilitys digital 1X network will power the first Wireless Point of Sale (WPOS) device in Canada that incorporates voice, data and messaging services.
Working with TD Canada Trust Merchant Services, the NBS Technologies Inc. Freedom II Wireless Point of Sale Terminal allows merchants to perform secure credit and debit card transactions or place a voice call from this all in one device from any location on Bell Mobilitys 1X digital network. Canadians enjoy the convenience of debit transactions. According to the Interac Association, more than 34 million banking cards are in circulation in Canada and cards are used an average of 76 times a second for every hour of every day. This new WPOS device gives Canadians another secure payment option. In addition to processing transactions, the NBS Technologies Freedom II CDMA terminal also functions as a mobile phone, which is of particular value to delivery and courier markets. Instead of equipping a delivery person with a POS terminal for card acceptance and a cell phone for communication, one device now does both.
