Sweden, the land that brought you the safest cars around as well as flat packed furniture, might soon pave the way for the future of postal service – the country’s postal service is mulling over the possibility of letting customers pay for postage using text messages instead of old school stamps. This messaging system will respond with a coded number, where it can be written on a letter as proof of postage payment. Of course, nothing is set in concrete just yet since officials will have to sit around the table and debate the plans as well as set a date for its deployment, although chances are pretty high you will still be using stamps to send your snail mail until the summer. Neighbors Denmark are slightly ahead of the game already, as they will be rolling out a similar service from April 2011 onwards.
