I sure as hell wouldn't be handing over my CC to somebody with hardware attached to his/her smartphone..... ;) EMT is everywhere these days, and I'm assuming that banks have mobile apps for their websites (although I'm not positive as I barely own a cellphone let alone a smartphone.... ;) ).

Actually it's becoming quite popular south of the border, and security issues seem to be very rare (Considering it's a piece of technology which involves money, forums would be on fire if there were massive flaws in it). It should also be noted it's not just "Swipe and go" there's also the standard CC verification stuff done so you can't just grab someone's card and go crazy.
