Nokia Wants You to Throw Away Your Wallet

Patent Monkey: Nokia Wants You to Throw Away Your Wallet:

"These early, mostly prototype examples show that companies are investing to find value-add RFID applications. While some interesting digital wallet and personalization technology moves along at a reasonable pace, infrastructure items such as placing RFID chips into item-level packaging, embedding readers/tags in our phones and facilitating transactions on a series of networks are taking quite a bit of time to come along. All this despite Wal-Mart forcing the issue. Perhaps Nokia can use Venyon to find a way to integrate retail, financial systems and its phones for an seamless user experience much in the way Apple connected the music industry into one clean system."
