CashWrap Case No Replacement for iPhone's Lack of NFC

My son picked up my phone the other day and commented that he liked the case I was using. It's not as bulky as some of the other ones, he told me. I agreed with him that the Incipio CashWrap on my iPhone 5 has a nice feel. But beyond being a nice case, it also allows me to make NFC-based payements using the ISIS mobile wallet, something that wouldn't be possible otherwise given Apple's deference to Bluetooth Low-Energy iBeacon technology for mobile payments. And while the Incipio CashWrap is a successful execution of a technolgy from which iPhone users have been excluded, it also underscores the continued weaknesses of the mobile wallet concept in the first place.
