Microsoft has been very secretive about some of the features of Windows Phone 8, ahead of the curtain officially being lifted on Monday 29 October. But I did manage to get a quick look at the new 'Wallet' feature native to the upcoming mobile OS.
Sadly it had not been pre-populated for the demo (pictured).
Wallet, which in part can use NFC technology for things like payments, is the new home of anything payment-related in Windows Phone 8. So any locally available deals, loyalty cards, in-app purchases, credit and debit cards and contactless payment details are all stored here.
Windows Phone 8 will also be able to use NFC for features like 'Tap + Send', for sharing content with another phone - much like the Android Beam feature introduced in Ice Cream Sandwich.
