The idea behind the Motorola Sparrow is to provide retail stores with a mobile point of sale device that solves increased service demands from consumers and decentralizes the check out point, so you can get out as quick as you can.
It’s got a scanner, point of sale system, RFID, communication and credit card reading capabilities all in one mobile device. The front and back of the Sparrow are touch-sensitive for ease of use and navigation. This is a huge improvement of an old idea. It would be great to see in the retail world. It looks kinda sexy even.
