Simple, easy to charge in a convenience store (put the money in the machine and the phone on a receiver and the money is charged), and then payment is just done through swiping the phone over a reader.

Oyster has a use already, pay and wave for transactions under £10 is convinient but I can't replace my wallet until I can make bigger payments too, I presume this would be where the payment system in the above article comes in. Stick a chip that can do all that in a mobile phone and roll it out in London where Londoners will initially use it as an Oyster card replacement. Now you have the momentum, once enough people have it coffee shops and bars (for the under £10 payments) followed by stores (for the bigger payments) will follow suit and as soon as they do in London, it gets rolled out to the rest of the country.
