My friend sent me this email:
"I've got a Paypal account here, connected to CIMB, after consulting my good friend, TK, on it.
This PayPal of mine holds my money in US$, since I use it to buy or donate to the apps I get from the smartphone apps market .
The consoling thing about us 1st generation or early users of smartphones who have no NFC in our devices, is knowing that we can still buy using PayPal online. Not that it's here in M'sia yet, but when it does, we'll be ready. A paper cashless form...
And as much favorably reported here, it's still a bit of hassle compared to NFC payments. So if we do dump our old smartphones, and get a new one, it better be one with NFC (iPhone 5, and all the current latest Androids). Or buy an NFC-enhanced SIM card which is also coming very fast - just pull out your old, and plug in your new NFC-enhanced SIM. Voila!!! Whichever is cheaper!
So, for all ye PayPal holders, rejoice when it comes to M'sia. Me, I can still use PayPal or my new-to-be NFC smartphone sometime next year, haha!!"
