Visa and Lloyds team up for mobile payment at next years olympics in London

A release from Visa Europe and a step forward with the goal to use mobile payment at the London Summer Games 2012.

Even if the number of nfc-enabled terminals is impressive there still a lot left todo. I get a feeling that Visa has to/want to approve each individual handset to be used..only one mentioned so far is the Samsung model with a special microSD card (still don’t understand why special hardware is needed).

Further more, with this initiave only one payment situation is solved..why don’t have all in one service? (POS, online, p2p, remittance and man-to-machine)
