ISIS mobile payments project to include Apple, hinting at NFC-equipped iPhone 5S
As if we needed further proof the iPhone 5S will include some sort of mobile payment hardware, the ISIS carrier initiative mentioned it will be including iPhones in its future expansion plans, as well as Windows Phones and BlackBerry.

What this likely means is that be it NFC coupled with fingerprint recognition tech in the home key, as rumored, or just NFC, Apple will be getting on the mobile payment bandwagon. With the excellent Passbook deals and coupons app, it might be just the nudge that ISIS needs for becoming mainstream, after nearly nine months of testing in Austin and Salt Lake City.

I still say that Google has a big lawsuit waiting for Verizon, AT&T, Visa etc.. who would not let wallet run on their networks. The government will side with Google because of it being a conspiracy to not hold back a competing system. If I were the carries I would tread very carefully because this will come back to bite them in the $$$ were they will be fined million if not billions and be required to refund customers for not being able to use a feature they paid for.
