by: Simon HillOctober 29, 2012
Analysts have been predicting the rise of NFC for a while now, but expectations vary wildly.

Isis support comes to Verizon’s Droid Razr HD and Droid Razr Maxx HD

by: Bams SadewoOctober 29, 2012

The new mobile payment system backed by three carriers (AT&T, Verizon and T-Mobile), dubbed as Isis Mobile Wallet, has been pushed back from its original September launch.

Leaked documents show ISIS is set to launch on October 22nd

by: ŠtefanOctober 10, 2012
Phones have been shipping with NFC (near field communication) support for several years now, but the one use case that we've all been waiting for, paying for things via a simple tap, has yet to take the market by storm. Google launched Google Wallet in May 2011, but hardly anyone is using it. Why? There aren't any technical reasons to explain Google Wallet's failure, it all boils down to politics.

It now looks like we have confirmation that the ISIS mobile payment project developed by Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile will be available to interested consumers in September. According to CNET, Doug Bergeron, CEO of Verifone, “which makes the payment terminals that most mobile payment [...]

T-Mobile Galaxy S2 Ice Cream Sandwich update also brings NFC/ISIS support

by: Chris SmithAugust 28, 2012

While we keep talking about Google Wallet mobile payment features, that are available only on NFC-ready devices, the fact remains that Google is not the only company out there interested in getting into the mobile payment business.

Three of the main four U.S. carriers – Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile – have joined forces to create the ISIS venture, a mobile platform of their own that would compete directly with Google Wallet, which explains why some NFC-enabled Android handsets do not support Google Wallet on these carriers. On top of that, there are also plenty of other mobile payment initiatives out there that are just getting [...]
