Microsoft is building what they call "the most complete wallet experience" in Windows Phone 8. It combines the NFC payment features of Android's Google Wallet with features comparable to Apple's Passbook.
It is designed to be used with a secure SIM for storing and moving payment information in a secure fashion.
Will Rogers's new SIM card support the WP8 Wallet so that Rogers can offer the complete wallet experience that is baked into the Windows Phone 8 OS? I'd much rather use a native wallet solution than have to install custom apps like the CIBC app.
The Rogers NFC SIM card will be compatible with any handset that is supporting the SIM as a Secure Element. We are very excited about the potential of seeing a WP8 device supporting SIM and we are looking forward to learning more details on the Microsoft Wallet experience.
