Orange Turns Samsung Galaxy S III Into 'Quick Tap' Payments Device

Summary: The operator's BarclayCard tie-in has been shifted into the smartphone era, with Samsung's flagship becoming the first Orange Android phone that can be used for contactless payments.

Samsung's Galaxy S III is to be the first of Orange's Android phones to gain compatibility with the operator's Quick Tap contactless payments system, run in conjunction with Barclaycard.

The 'mobile wallet' program has been operating since May 2011, when Red and Barclaycard presented it on the New Samsung Tocco Quick Tap, a primary featurephone. The program is depending on near-field interaction (NFC) technological innovation, which is quickly a choice function of mobile phones, and now Quick Tap has come to the leading Android operating program smart phone of the day.

According to Red and Barclaycard, anyone who purchases an Red New Samsung Galaxy S III from Wed, and who has a UK MasterCard or Charge cards, will be able to use the mobile phone to create contactless expenses of up to £20.

The owner is also providing £50 to anyone who triggers the assistance between 5 Sept and 5 Oct.

"We are really thrilled to be releasing Quick Tap expenses on one of the most well-known mobile phones of the season," Red UK propositions home Simeon Fowl said in a declaration.

A representative for Red informed ZDNet UK that those who have already grabbed a Galaxy S III from the owner should be able to use Quick Tap by the end of Oct.

Mobile pockets schemes :

NFC-based expenses have been getting off gradually in the UK, with quite fragmented techniques prepared up by services and financial services.

The Orange-Barclaycard tie-in was the first. Since then, Everything Everywhere — the organization behind the Red and T-Mobile manufacturers in the UK — has declared a collaboration with MasterCard, and United kingdom has done the same with Charge.

There was expected to be a collaboration between all the services except for Three — no description was given as to why Three was omitted — but that is currently on ice while the Western Commission payment chooses whether to prevent it on antitrust reasons.
