    It'd be very useful if the mobile phone manufacturers agreed on an industry wide standard.

    For example Nokia and select Android phones have NFC whereas Apple have Passbook.

    If they could agree on how best to take it forward and adopt it I feel it could revolutionise the market.

    If Apple have no intention of using NFC in their iDevices then UK retailers need to take on Passbook.
