Visa has approved Research In Motion's cloud-based Secure Element Manager security management system that supports mobile payments in phones equipped with near field communication technology, RIM said Wednesday. Carriers would deploy the software and server system in wireless devices so that users could make mobile payments through Visa-affiliated banks. RIM also said that more than 1,600 businesses have begun training on the BlackBerry 10 operating system that the company is scheduled to introduce Jan. 30.
