As Mobile Commerce Daily recently wrote, The retail POS (point-of-sale) market is quickly evolving thanks to the increased popularity of mobile payments.

Retailers, in a moderate pace, are currently realizing that hand held check-out devices increasingly are requested by customers but also increases service levels. With more movable staff, out of stock items are with ease still paid for to be picked up in-store or delivered to an address preferred by the customer.

In the next level customers them selves will handle many of these functions directly with their devices and (not to forget) wearables. Early leaders such as Starbucks are already using mobile payments as a means to augment existing payment mechanisms.
