Yahoo! has added a new mobile communications product to its portfolio.
It’s called Hub and is available as a beta Android app to users with a US-based SIM card. Plans for availability outside the USA haven’t been confirmed.
The new Telefónica Digital business unit has reached an agreement with security technology company Giesecke & Devrient to establish a single European-wide platform for Near Field Communication services.
It means that G&D will take care of the ‘Trusted Service Manager’ technology and will also be one of the suppliers of NFC-enabled SIM cards.
