Softbank Introduces NFC Stickers for Apple iPhone

Software is introducing NFC stickers for the iPhone 4 that connect to the FeliCa payment system in Japan, according to Engadget.

Japanese carrier Softbank has responded to complaints about the iPhone 4's NFC deficit -- the FeliCa payment system is pretty popular over in the land of sumo, sushi and sun-rising -- by introducing a new "seal" for the back of Apple's latest and greatest. It sticks on, covering almost the entire rear, but is apparently thin enough not to get in the way of using one of Apple's own Bumpers alongside it.

The sticker doesn't actually communicate with the iPhone but will still allow you to make payments by swiping your device. It reported goes on sale in February at a price of ¥2,980 ($36).
