I had heard about this little Square gadget awhile back but I didn't aggressively find out anymore information on it until recently. So here is how it went.....
|Old Phone doesn't support|
Fast forward to the present. Okay so then a few months back another artist friend tells me they have a Square and they don't have an iPhone. So now I'm getting a little antsy because we both are vendors in the event next month and he would be able to accept credit cards.
So like a loyal BB user I begin to look for other point of sales transaction devices or apps that don't involve a commitment and a first born for my beloved BlackBerry.
But this Square was romancing me with their user friendly, free, and no commitment. So back to my trip to the cellphone store. They have all these nice phones and at first I wasn't quite ready to give up my button pushing qwerty keypad. So I played around with different phones that had both features.
But there she was....This big shiny vibrant screen. The phone size was like a mini tablet of some sorts. Yet the phone was thin and very lightweight. I played with it for awhile but the iPhone was looking pretty nice as well. However the only thing that the iPhone had over shiny big phone was the instagram app.
I asked the sales associate a few decision making questions and then I made my choice.
