New-Tech Credit Cards On The Way

The Bank of China Hong Kong announced recently that it plans to launch its first credit card that is compatible with Near Field Communication (“NFC) technology this year. NFC is a set of standards for smartphones and similar devices to communicate with each other by either by touching or bringing them into close proximity. One of the products that will be offered will serve as an electronic wallet for clients containing all their credit cards issued by the bank and will enable them to turn their iPhones into payment devices.
