Are QR Codes obsolete with the new Google Wallet?

Few consumers are actually using QR codes.  According to a recent study: from digital analyst comScore, " a measly 6 percent of mobile subscribers currently use the technology. That 6 percent tends to be male, white and wealthy".

NFC or near field communication could replace QR codes. Last week Google launched its first NFC app, called Google wallet which could bypass QR codes altogether.  Read the story at NPR.
