Now a lot of signs are showing that the time has come for mobile payments to skyrocket:
- AT&T, Verizon and T-mobile joined their force in the US market to propose a unique solution.
- Blackberry has launched on their new device an NFC feature, which will allow users to pay thanks to their phones.
- Coca Cola is experimenting in Belgium vending machines with mobile payments.
- Carrefour and other large retailers have equipped their stores with contactless mobile payments devices.
This morning I have watched a show about it, which shows that the idea is going main stream.
Of course, a lot of questions remain unanswered, about security… But all the actors are working on it, and I am sure it will eventually being fixed.
