According to sources cited by Bloomberg, HP is working on mobile devices that will include near field communications technology to enable mobile payments. Bloomberg's sources said that HP is looking to add mobile payment features to both phones and tablets, and the first products may be available as soon as the end of the year. HP is taking the measure to ensure that its webOS platform and smartphones/tablets remain competitive with rival platforms. A number of NFC-based mobile payment systems are in the works from leading companies such as Google, Samsung, Sprint, Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, and others. HP declined to comment on Bloomberg's story.
