Today, Google joined the NFC Forum, a standards setting body for NFC in payments and other applications. We’d expect to see Android’s NFC support to evolve toward a consistent, NFC Forum-congruent shape. That could make life more difficult for Zenius and its competitors.
The Zenius management team looks strong, with experience from VeriFone, VIVOtech, Way Systems, Visa, and others.
San Francisco, CA (PressExposure) March 29, 2011 — Zenius Solutions, Inc. today introduced the world’s first universal NFC Transactions Suite, a modular set of frameworks and applications that facilitate rapid NFC deployment.
