BlackBerry Bold 9900 NFC Gets Mobile MasterCard Approval
I don't know about you, but I've been anxious to take advantage of NFC on my BlackBerry Bold 9930. There really is no use yet for NFC, unless you have a Google Nexus S which supports Google Wallet. Now for the good news, MasterCard posted up on their site that the BlackBerry Bold 9900 is NFC approved for the Mobile MasterCard. The approval process for the device includes functional reliability, interoperability, and security. Thankfully the Bold 9900 series meets the standards! So hopefully we'll be seeing an application launch soon enough for the Bold as the approval has just taken place. Still no Curve 9360 on the list yet, but hopefully that will go into consideration soon as well since the device has launched (and still is launching) all over the world.
