SprintBloomberg reports that Sprint will be launching a NFC payment system ahead of competitor Isis.  This rounds out the list of companies that will be launching a NFC payment system before Isis, ie., everyone.

“We intend to make this an open solution where consumers can use their phone in a variety of physical locations,” said Kevin McGinnis, vice president of product platforms. “Because we’re allowing other brands and other institutions to participate, they can also tell their consumers that this is available on Sprint.”
