Isis, the joint venture for NFC-based mobile payments from Verizon Wireless, AT&T, and T-Mobile, has announced that it has garnered support from a list of hardware manufacturers that have committed to producing handsets with Isis-compatible NFC hardware on them.
HTC, LG, Motorola Mobility, RIM, Samsung, Sony Ericsson, and DeviceFidelity have all committed to release devices that have NFC hardware that complies with Isis' standards. T-Mobile has already revealed that its version of the Samsung Galaxy S II will be compatible with Isis' service. DeviceFidelity will be responsible for adding NFC functionality to devices that are not smartphones and don't have the feature out of the box.
Trials of Isis' service are expected to begin in early 2012.
