Update: This was just an unintentional leak. Here’s what Groupon has really released.
Groupon has released a new POS solution for the iPad. The app, which can be found in the App Store, is described as “a beautiful and simple way to manage your business and accept payments at the lowest rates available today.”
Groupon has not put out any official announcements about the product so far, but one is likely on the way. Appsfire tweeted about the app, which was then picked up by TechCrunch and other outlets:

On the Groupon POS app page, Groupon describes it:
Setup your offerings in seconds, quickly check out customers, and view real time analytics. Start running your business more effectively.
Groupon POS works also works with an optional cash drawer and printer to automate and simplify your point of sale.
Groupon POS works for a wide variety of merchants from cafes and delis, to salons, spas, and florists.
Here are screen shots from the App Store:
The app appears to build off Breadcrumb, the POS app Groupon acquired last year, and has since been improving.
Groupon reported its Q1 earnings last weekend, beating Wall Street expectations for revenue.
