Visa Teams With Google for Mobile Play Using Android

Finally just like my phone in Japan this deal could turn cell phones into credit cards for US consumers.

Life may take Visa, but life today for many takes a cell phone. So Visa is going mobile, striking a deal with Google and its new Android mobile operating platform that incorporates not only innovative mobile payment methods but takes advantage of new marketing technologies.

With Android, some users will soon be able to opt into a Visa system to sign up to for offers from marketers that sends deals sent directly to their phones. A user could click an “Offers” button on his or her phone to see what the latest deal might be. Then, through a “Locator” feature, which uses Google Maps, the customer can find exactly where the nearest retailer offering the deal is located.

I will certainly have more on this soon as this will change the way we live in a very short period…In Japan my phone is key not my wallet.
