Isis download screenshotA Mobile Payments Today blogger passed along a screenshot of the Isis Mobile Wallet app from Google Play.

It's now available for download, but just not for use. The pilot program will reportedly launch in Salt Lake City, Utah, and Austin, Texas, on Oct. 22. 

As detailed a couple of weeks ago in MPT, the Isis Mobile Wallet will require customers in the two pilot cities to make a trip into a Verizon Wireless, AT&T or T-Mobile store to have the requisite SIM chip installed into certain models of NFC-enabled phones. 

The only phones that can use the mobile wallet app at this point will be Galaxy SII, Galaxy SIII and Galaxy Relay 4G devices (so long as they're not rooted).

According to the download page, users will only be able to store and use payment credentials from partner credit card issuers Chase, Capital One and American Express to start.

    Ah, well, I'll simply keep on using my little piece of plastic ...

    In the meantime, Visa’s online digital wallet, “V.me”, is out of beta testing on buy.com and is, apparently, now generally available for online buyers in the US and Canada (and Australia soon too, I hope).

    I expect that those online merchants in North America, that already have a credit card merchant account with a real bank, will surely now start dumping the clunky PreyPal in favor of Visa’s professional offering—and John Donahoe’s performance bonuses will surely be coming to an end as PreyPal will be no longer be able to power the bilge pumps to stop the leaking old hulk eBay, from finally slipping beneath the waves. Certainly, once Visa’s V.me is available worldwide, PreyPal will be dead in the water—except for its effectively mandated use on the ever atrophying eBay Marketplace … Let’s then see how well the eBafia Don and his clunky PreyPal fare in the next twelve months or so …

    Regardless, online buyers finally have access to a professional online digital wallet: Visa’s “V.me”:
