As Isis Mobile Wallet launched nationwide on November 14, Verizon Wireless was ready to support the service on 15 Android smartphones within their system. Isis Mobile Wallet uses near-field communication (NFC), a technology that allows a smartphone to securely and easily transmit information to a payment terminal.
“Isis Mobile Wallet is the next revolutionary feature for your smartphone, changing how you shop in the same way camera apps forever changed how you snap and share pictures, or how Google Maps changed how you navigate in your car,” said Jerry Fountain, president for Verizon Wireless in Carolinas and Tennessee. “But Isis is more than just a convenient way to pay. Security and identity theft are major concerns for most consumers, and Isis builds an extra layer of protection around your transactions.”
