There is quite a bit going on in the mobile payment space with the latest coming from MasterCard and CSI Enterprises. CSI Enterprises already offers some special purpose MasterCard solutions and according to Engadget they are working on a new one for BlackBerry, Android, and iOS. Since both BlackBerry and iOS do not currently have NFC capabilities until the BlackBerry Bold 9900 brings NFC it will be interesting to see how the payments work.
This new solution is scheduled to launch in July which looks like it may be before the Bold 9900 launch. Should be interesting to see how this pans out. It would be really slick if RIM teamed up with Visa or MasterCard to enable “tap to pay” style payments with the Bold 9900 and other new devices as they launch.
