We did read about Visa and Intel teaming up a couple of days ago, and on this special day when ladies are allowed to propose to the men whom they want to spend the rest of their lives with, along comes news that there will be at least half a dozen more Visa-certified NFC capable smartphones that will be making their way to the masses in the near future. Visa had already approved of the six smartphones from Samsung, LG and RIM to make use of the new Visa payWave technology since last year in a bid to jumpstart their effort in propogating the benefits of NFC payments as well as services on mobile devices.
The handsets include Samsung’s Galaxy S II, LG’s Optimus NET NFC, BlackBerry Bold 9900, BlackBerry Bold 9790, BlackBerry Curve 9360 and BlackBerry Curve 9380, and assuming a smartphone manufacturer’s design and materials used in other devices remain the same as that of the Visa-approved handset, then chances are pretty good that these new devices will also receive the nod of approval from Visa as well. Wireless payment is coming, making your smartphone all the more essential to you than ever before. Are you looking forward to that?
