• Rogers And CIBC Announce Mobile NFC Wallet App To Launch This Year

    Score one for BlackBerry exclusively. Rogers, a mobile carrier, and CIBC, a bank, have announced they will launching a mobile wallet app that will support NFC-enabled BlackBerry smartphones later this year in Canada.

    Why is this important? Wel,l this will allow any user that has this app to make mobile payments using their BlackBerry device instead of a credit card. In order to do so, one will hold their BlackBerry up to the NFC terminal, a prompt on the phone will appear asking for their card PIN and that's it. Transaction complete!

    Sounds pretty cool right? We think so too and we believe this is just the start of the future of mobile payments and for the time being, it's a BlackBerry-only thing.
