NEW NFC HAND­SET RE­QUIRE­MENT

Gadgets and Gizmos (India) - - MOBILES -

Although mo­bile pay­ments will be the big­gest driv­ing force for NFC to

be­come a mass-mar­ket tech­nol­ogy, there are cer­tain is­sues that are yet to be

ironed out. In case a sin­gle de­vice has two or more wal­lets ac­tive, it be­comes

dif­fi­cult for the phone to se­lect one for mak­ing pay­ments. To get past this

hur­dle, the GMSA As­so­ci­a­tion has pub­lished a new NFC hand­set re­quire­ment

say­ing that only one se­cure el­e­ment should be ac­tive in a de­vice at any one

time. Also, NFC phones must ship with the NFC SIM, which would be is­sued

and con­trolled by the car­rier, set as the de­fault ac­tive se­cure el­e­ment.
