First Data has published "Contactless Payments: Consumer Trends and Usage Preferences" icon_PDF_small.gif saying that "the first step toward mobile commerce is the introduction of consumer-friendly form factors (i.e. a sticker attached to a person’s mobile device or ID badge; a wristband; or a key fob)."
