Isis confirmed in an interview that its forthcoming near-field communications mobile payment system will support Google's Android platform. Speaking with PCMag, Isis' head of marketing Jaymee Johnson said, "It's safe to say that when Isis launches we'll have multiple payment networks, multiple issuers, multiple handsets, multiple operating systems, multiple manufacturers. Yes, and Android." Isis is being backed by AT&T, T-Mobile USA, and Verizon Wireless. It has scheduled trials for the first half of 2012. Meanwhile, Sprint and Google have launched Google Wallet — which also uses NFC technology for mobile payments — in several markets with more on tap for later this year. Isis is confident, however, that its wider choice of networks, banks, and devices will help it succeed against Google Wallet, which is limited in its scale.
