General Manager of strategy and business development at Vodafone, Thomas Roets says the system is set to harness emerging technology in the smartphone space. "NFC is fast becoming the "it” feature for smartphones, and for very good reason."

"As early as next year, customers with NFC-enabled smartphones will be able to leave their wallets at home and pay for a morning coffee, an evening out with friends, or groceries, with their handset."

“Over the next few months, we’ll be engaging in intensive trials and testing with Visa to ensure the Vodafone SmartPass brings together the highest standards of security with the most simple functionality and convenience for customers.”
