Public transport operator Stagecoach Group has launched a trial of NFC bus tickets in partnership with Everything Everywhere. It’s enabling some customers on the Stagecoach bus network in Cambridgeshire to use their Orange ‘Quick Tap’ NFC phones as tickets.
The scheme uses the Department of Transport’s preferred ITSO ticketing technology and is described as the UK’s first Government-standard commercial deployment of mobile contactless transport ticketing.
From Monday, Carphone Warehouse will be offering half-price Norton Mobile Security software with every new Android handset it sells in the UK.
It’s the result of a partnership agreement between Carphone Warehouse and Symantec Corporation.
