SoftBank Mobile chose Gemalto for the latest mobile contactless payment trial in Japan, involving convenience stores, fast-food restaurants and theaters.

The program is the first in Asia to enable secure mobile near field communication (NFC) transactions from a choice of different credit card

accounts.

The pilot is expected to roll out in the first quarter of 2011.

The program also offers users the option to perform NFC transactions from Orient – the service provider of MasterCard PayPass in Japan -- and Credit Saison.
