Just received: "Join 2degrees CEO, Eric Hertz, for an exclusive media event, as he unveils a New Zealand first technology that will revolutionise mobile handset usage."

UPDATE: Touch2Pay is now live. Here is the Snapper Mobile page. I have created a thread with 2degrees TouchPay with Snapper including their FAQ - any questions should go there now.

I'm hoping multiple-SIMs per plan (for multiple devices owned by one person). Let's wait and see

A data only plan for those that want to do all calls by SIP/VOIP? Trust me this is going to be the next big thing!

That would probably be it. Interesting, but a pretty small market at present isn't it? A phone with NFC will be required, that and Snapper is only in Auckland/Wellington?
