Introducing the Windows Phone 8 Wallet

One of the new features with Windows Phone 8 is the Wallet app. Microsoft has added a digital wallet that you can use to keep your debit, credit, loyalty and membership card information handy on your Windows Phone.

The Wallet app also has the ability to find other apps to link with that can provide additional information on that card or account such as balance and transaction history. Wallet can also be used to find and share local shopping deals.

Your Windows Phone Wallet app supports secure payment through NFC (carrier support is required) where you can pay for purchases by tapping your NFC enabled Windows Phone (like the Lumia 920) to a NFC point of sale terminal.

Our initial impressions of the Windows Phone Wallet app is good and we'll get a more detailed review up on the Wallet app once we get our hands on this new Windows Phone feature.
