Bank of America Testing NFC Payments With Mobile Wallet Program


Back at Mobile World Congress 2011, we heard RIM talk a lot about NFC payments and the fact that we’ll be seeing them on BlackBerrys this year. Following this news, we’re now hearing that Bank of America has started a new trial program called Mobile Wallet, that lets you make payments from your BlackBerry to any location where Mastercard’s PayPass is accepted. To use the program, you need a BlackBerry as well as a battery cover with a special antenna and a microSD card. The program will go live this Spring.
