Continental Airlines is going truly paperless at SFO. On Tuesday the carrier and the TSA will demonstrate how it work. The system allows the airline to send a boarding pass to your cell Phone or PDA.

The image is then scanned by the TSA at the security checkpoint, eliminating the need for a paper boarding pass.

The system is already being used at some other U.S. airports involving other airlines too.
