Samsung's Galaxy S IV will support NFC payments for Visa (V) credit and debit accounts, courtesy of Visa's PayWave app. The tie-up is part of a broader partnership the companies estimate will cover 100M NFC-enabled Samsung devices over the next 12 months. Separately, MasterCard (MA) is unveiling MasterPass, a multi-card mobile payments platform that supports both NFC and other contactless technologies. NFC chip leader NXP (NXPI +1%) might be receiving a slight boost from the news.

    Yet the IPhone still lacks NFC. I am guessing they'll wait till everyone else has had it for awhile (you know, like a bigger screen, 4G etc) before they put it into the "revolutionary" new IPhone

    See also Gemalto (GTOMY.PK) for a play on NFC.
