Windows Phone 8 to include the
Microsoft's Joe Belfiore is on stage now touting the digital wallet experience that will come with the NFC support in Windows Phone 8. Overall, it will evidently be the "most complete wallet experience" in the realms of mobile.

The so-called Wallet Hub will be able to store info for your credit, debit, loyalty and membership cards, as well as coupons, daily deals and tap-to-pay capabilities. 

The Wallet Hub feature seems like Passbook in iOS 6 on steroids, since if the phone has NFC and "secure SIM" it will be able to make payments directly.
