    When will WP7 get a credit card reader app? I use my evo4g for business and a big part of it is using the Square reader and app. I dont know if there is any reader for WP&, is there?

    Not that I know of, no. I would email Square and see if they are planning to migrate it over.

    You'll see some stuff eventually either with card readers or NFC, but it may be early next year before any of them are released.

    As a business owner I use my phone daily for:

    1-Navigation-all day
    2-Credit card payments-all day
    3-Answering phone-all day
    4-Music player-at gym
    5-Throughout day on internet,this site, and Pulse reader.
    If MS cant make my WP7 transition happen by xmas or earlier, then I will just stick with Android. I really want WP7 for Zune and Xbox integration and to use for my business like i do with my Evo4g now. Credit card payments on my phone are vital and a deal breaker as 35% of my customers pay this way.

    And they aren't SquareUp which is by far the most popular. It's a big deal for many small merchants who have switched from a standard processor to SquareUp.

    No way to take payments on the go for us right now.

    I'd like to see this too. The Intuit gopayment app is available but the reader does not work on my Focus Flash. I hope we can get the SquareUp app and reader for WP7.5 eventually.

    I use an iPod touch for Square payments at my place. That way I can still take CC's with my WP in tow.

    *As stated before, Square is planning an app, once WP8 is released.

    Remember back when MS was doing the Zune Insider and WP podcasts? I think I remember an episode where a lady, maybe a hair stylist, was using her phone to accept CC payments, along with everything else her WP helped her do in her small business.
