Windows Phone 8 will come with “The Most Complete Wallet Experience”

The next big new feature for Windows Phone 8 is a wallet expirience. This will be a huge step in mobile payments, especially since Google is really the only one attempting this in the US.

Windows Phone’s wallet will support credit and debit cards, loyalty and membership cards, saved deals, and support for NFC “Tap tp Pay.” Microsoft is talking about how secure the service will be.¬†Windows Phone Wallet offers secure element on the SIM card for easy transition from one phone to the next. Unlike Google Wallet which has seen partners like Sprint pull back on NFC payment offerings because of these complications.

They are also working closely with Isis, but they won’t have a partnership at launch. It looks like this is more than just a “pay with your phone” service, and a nice complete offering.
