With the growing number of smartphones, mobile payment is going to be the popular form of paying money soon. Popularly known as NFC, now, RIM and some Carriers are at a bitter feud about NFC data in BlackBerry handsets.
RIM wants the NFC related information to be stored in a part of the device so that the customers cannot move this data to another set. On the other hand, some carriers like Rogers Communications (Canada) and AT&T and T-Mobile (USA) want that the NFC data remains in the SIM card. If this happens then consumers can easily move their SIM to another set.
It seems to be a silly fight but millions (if not billions) of dollars of business is involved with this simple decision.
