Today at the Windows Phone event, a massive amount of features were revealed for the new Windows mobile OS, operating system. One of those new features is Wallet, seemingly to directly combat Google’s Google wallet. This new feature is the first stage in Windows phones taking place of your physical wallet.
One way the wallet app will replace your cards and cash is by providing a feature that will allow Wallet to record your debit and credit cards’ information. After that, it can do such things as: keeping transaction history, account balances, and more. You can also find local deals through the app/feature.
Another way this new feature will replace traditional wallets, is by providing NFC mobile payment access. This is a method of paying for items through tapping the NFC (Near-Field communication) chip normally located in the back of you phone to the card terminal in the building. Your phone will have to be NFC enabled, like the Lumia 920.
Who’s ready to paying with their phones and leaving their wallet at home?
