Research in Motion is enjoying the start of a serious comeback.
That’s according to a growing number of industry analysts who believe RIM is on the verge of restoring its smartphone superpower status when the BlackBerry 10 line is unveiled later this month.
A critical component to this anticipated bounce, however, is how quickly BlackBerry deploys cutting edge technologies that consumers are starting to demand from their mobile devices.
As an example, one of the factors contributing to RIM’s Wall Street surge this week was news of Visa approving BlackBerry’s method for handling secure mobile payments.
The green light from Visa is a step toward offering global support for any device equipped with RIM’s mobile-payments technology.”
“The approval from Visa of RIM’s SEM solution is an important step in that it will enable carriers to support Visa issuing banks and financial institutions,” said Frank Maduri, an executive with RIM responsible for mobile payment services. “We now offer carriers a robust solution with around-the-clock global support that works on any NFC-capable device, and meets the stringent technology and usability guidelines for Visa.”
