O2 has launched its long delayed mobile wallet, allowing mobile and tablet users to use virtual payments to purchase goods and services.

 

Telefonica UK's O2 mobile network has struck the first blow in the mobile payment war, launching its O2 Wallet, a virtual wallet that exists on mobile phones to pay for goods and services not just online, but in real world physical retailers.
