VISA throws its weight behind NFC contactless payments, but will Apple?
It appears that Apple is still vacillating on whether iPhone 5 will handle NFC. Although some blaggards have already hacked iPhone 4 to enable NFC, bless ‘em.
But fear not – VISA has entered the frey. Although the initiative is not entirely altruistic and carries some bad news for merchants with respect to bearing the cost of fraud (rather than the card company).
Nonetheless, this will definitely facilitate the move online with transactions keeping pace seamlessly.
If Apple don’t deliver with the iPhone – we can be sure that other alternatives will. Stay tuned!
