No question that the transaction needs to be supported by the whole business chain...but about consumers? will people be comfortable with paying using cell phone? some countries will lead for sure due to cultural reasons...Kris

probably this is one technology which could be really a useful one for the future. No hassle of carrying credit card or money. Everything happens with a wave of ur mobile.

Does ISIS handle the transaction between the mechandize and the financial institute? Or it acts like a financial institute, similar to paypal? In my opinion, the adaption of the technology is more depending on the backing from the banks than on the backing from the cell phone vendors.

We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
