Maxis to launch iPhone NFC payments in Malaysia

Maxis FastTap coming to the iPhone

Malaysian mobile network operator Maxis is to enable iPhone users to take part in its FastTap NFC payments service “soon”, using an add-on NFC case.

Maxis FastTap, launched in April 2009, was the world’s first commercial NFC service but until now has only been available on early Nokia 6212 Classic feature phones and has not gained widespread adoption.

The new iPhone NFC service is to be offered in conjunction with CIMB Clicks, the online arm of CIMB Bank.
