Verifone’s NFC-capable payment system PAYware Mobile has reached Asia, after launches in North America and Europe.

The device attaches to any iPhone 3G, 3GS and iPhone 4 to convert it into a portable payment terminal via an in-phone application.

The device features a PIN pad and 2D bar-code scanner for mobile checkouts and inventory. Retailers can manage several devices remotely from a single administration account. The system is PCI and EMV compliant. Verifone also claims the device is the world’s smallest NFC acceptance machine.

Verifone is targeting Japan, Hong Kong and Singapore for its Asia rollout. The company is conducting pilot tests with retailers in all three markets.
