Verizon contradicts itself with ISIS approval and Google Wallet block

It looks like we've learned a bit more behind the Google Wallet block on Verizon Wireless today. There's been a lot of talk lately about this "secure element."

The secure element is in most new devices using NFC and securely handles credit card information, royalty cards, and everything else for mobile payments.

Isis arrives in Salt Lake City and Austin

If you've been closely watching the development of Isis Mobile Wallet, you'll be pleased to know that the service launched in Salt Lake City, Utah, and Austin, Texas today. Even better is the news that nine handsets are supporting Isis from the start, so you've got some options when it comes to picking an Isis-ready phone. Since Isis is a team up between AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon, all you need to do is stop in at one of their stores and pick up your Isis-supported handset (provided you live in Salt Lake City or Austin, of course).
