PayPal has unveiled a new payments solution for small businesses called PayPal Here. The triangle-shaped mobile credit card reader (designed by Yves Behar from Fuseproject) and accompanying merchant app allow smartphones to act as POS devices.

Merchants can also track receipts and issue invoices directly from the app.
