Submission + - Transport for London ticketing chief dubious about mobile NFC (techworld.com) 1

An anonymous reader writes: The head of business development at Transport for London (TfL), whose Oyster card system is one of the most successful contactless ticketing programmes in the world, claims he is “not convinced” about mobile payments using NFC because there are too many stakeholders – with banks, retailers, mobile network operators, device manufacturers and advertisers all fighting for a share of the revenues. “It's taken ages. How much money is there to make with all these parties trying to get a piece of it?” said Hudson, speaking at a Westminster eForum on the future of digital payments. “We've just sat back and said we're not interested. When you've worked it out come back to us and we'll engage.”
