NFC mobile phones to arrive on Orange later this year

Barclaycard and Orange NFCJust over a year ago, Orange and Barclaycard announced a partnership that promised "the biggest revolution in payments since plastic cards were introduced over 40 years ago".

Then, at the beginning of January, we reported on an NFC-equipped credit card from the two companies.

Now we hear that Barclaycard and Orange are planning to launch mobile payments later this year with an NFC-equipped mobile phone. Sarah Mansfield, Barclaycard’s Head of Innovation Marketing, talked about the plans at a marketing event earlier this month.

For more background about mobile payments, listen to our conversation with Mary Carol Harris of Visa Europe last month.
