16% of Japanese mobile users use digital wallet

Dave links to a report that highlights usage of cell phones as a digital wallet in Japan. Great statistic here … almost 16% use their phone for this purpose.

Digital Money Forum: We should have such problems

Only a sixth of mobile phone subscribers use their handsets as contactless wallets! ONLY A SIXTH!! Well, here in the U.K. it’s about 0.001% so I’m quite jealous. Not just of Japan, but of lots of other places.
