It's a common misconception that Google Wallet uses tokenization in a secure manner. It does not use it in the way Apple Pay, and the new system that is in place does. The "token" Google uses is reusable, it's not a cone time token. As such, if you transaction is broken I to, as can be done with a portable NFC reader, a major security problem with NFC, that token might be usable for another transaction. The standard Apple Jesus, which apparently has been developed with...
Google's entire back end for this is less secure.
He's only incorrect in minor details. Everything else he said is correct. I notice that you didn't respond to the rest.
It isn't nearly as secure. First of all, it doesn't use a secure area for credit card info. Secondly it doesn't use one time tokens.

Not what was said.I really don't think these people know what Apple is. They just churn out homilies. I guess they want Apple to resemble Microsoft.
Except for really cheap tablets, mostly by unknown Chinese manufacturers, not very high. And does that really matter? I know some folks who have bought those cheap things. None have been in use after the first couple of weeks.
