Phone with NFC not equal to mobile wallet

There is now articles all over the place saying that for example NFC equipped phones is “a mobile wallet”.

Time to clarify! NFC only enables the short range communication between for example the mobile and the point of sale terminal. It’s not the mobile wallet, just some technology to speed up and ease the user experience at the purchase.
