Mobile payment JV ISIS announces first banking partners

2

The joint venture between AT&T Mobility, T-Mobile USA and Verizon Wireless announced three major card issuers – Chase, Capital One and Barclaycard – have agreed to enable their credit, debit and prepaid cards on the Isis Mobile Wallet. While Google has shot out with its Google Wallet service, Isis has taken a more methodical approach in its digital wallet, lining up partners and slowing treading into the mobile-payments water.

ISIS should be available sometime in mid-2012 in “test markets” which include the likes of Salt Lake City, Austin with a bigger, national rollout sometime next year. If you’re wondering where Sprint is in all of this, they’re one of the only US carriers who have made a commitment to Google’s NFC mobile payment service Google Wallet.
