Isis, which is due to kick off this summer, has now secured cash register and payment hardware makers VeriFone, Ingenico, ViVOtech, and Equinox Payments as partners. They have vowed to integrate the Isis Mobile Commerce Application wireless payments technology into their future products. Isis will use NFC technology for payments, digital couponing, location-based social media offers, and more. It's a competitor for Google's Wallet offering.
(Update: name "Google Wallet") Corroborating earlier rumors, ViVOtech's presence tomorrow at a Google event appears to confirm the focus on NFC technology. The search giant has yet to formally announce specific details regarding the subject of the event, however ViVOtech specializes solely in NFC technology "used by merchant, payment, mobile, web and advertising companies around the world," according to the company's website.
