Mophie to roll out iPhone credit card reader

Mophie, maker of slim-'n-handy battery-extending Juicepack Air iPhone cases, now ventures into the world of credit card readers with its product that'll be rolled out at CES 2010 this week. Imagine that — now everybody with an iPhone will be able to accept MasterCard, Visa, Discover, or American Express. At last, an easy way to pay for those $20 sandwiches on airplanes.

This credit card reader is attached to the bottom of an iPhone case, and includes a transaction application that makes it so all stores can be as hip and trendy as Apple retail outlets, eschewing cash registers altogether. But wait, isn't there a chip on credit cards that might make all this physical swiping unecessary?
