Mobile NFC Payments Ready for National Rollout this Year – Windows Phone Included

July 31, 2013 No Comments

With NFC technology, the ability to make payments via your mobile device is already a reality but so far it has still been in ‘testing’ in the US. Now Bloomberg has reported that all the major US networks (except Sprint) are ready to rollout the ability this year.


Isis, the mobile-payment venture backed by AT&T Inc. (T), Verizon Wireless and T-Mobile US Inc. (TMUS), is planning its national rollout after nine months of tests.

The service, which lets users make purchases by tapping their phones, will work on Apple Inc.’s (AAPL) iPhones as well as Microsoft Corp.’s Windows Phone and BlackBerry Ltd.’s newest smartphones, Isis said in a statement. It will continue to work with some devices powered by Google Inc.’s Android software.

Windows Phone 8 devices have NFC and Windows Phone Wallet. It’ll be interesting to see how many people actually use their smartphones to make payments in the real world.
