Mobile payments will become mainstream
In North America, we expect Google (Nasdaq: GOOG)/ Sprint Corp. (NYSE: S)/MasterCard to extend their partnership and include Google Payments in a wider base of Android devices. We expect Verizon Communications Inc. (NYSE: VZ) and AT&T to push their venture Isis to launch services before mid-2012 with features similar to Google Payments: localized coupons, mobile transactions with the use of the device and CRM features for merchants.
