An integral part of my daily Paris metro experience and thus dear to my heart, Near Field Communications advances are making my life easier. I could use more NFC in my life, so I was happy to learn some NFC news by following coverage of Mobile World Congress from Orange.
You couldn’t make the event and are a fellow NFC fan? No worries, I’ve selected some blog highlights for you:

“On stage at Mobile World Congress Barcelona 2012. ISIS CEO, Michael Abbot painted a future where no one will need a physical wallet but simply use their mobile phone to swipe, tap, bump to make a transaction. In an ISIS study with 18-34 year olds in the U.S. and UK, the majority felt more naked without smartphone than without their wallet. When asked, if they would use a mobile wallet, only 15% said ‘yes’ but 70% said they wanted a safe, secure and convenient payment system.” Read the full post here.
