Isis, the mobile payment venture backed by AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon Wireless, will launch nationwide later this year.

It was due to launch earlier this year, but faced delays. According to Isis, 25 of the top 100 retailers are installing terminals compatible with the system. Many consumers already own smartphones with the necessary NFC components inside.
