“CONSUMERS will be able to buy goods in Melbourne with a simple swipe of their mobile phones by early 2008, National Australia Bank said….
NAB is working with Telstra and Visa on three-month trial of the technology involving around 200 people and 30 stores in the greater Melbourne area. An NAB spokeswoman said the group expected to roll-out the technology early next year.
…in the future the technology could be used to hold loyalty, membership cards, marketing offers, public transport tickets and building access security cards. “
