Google’s big NFC announcement featured a familiar face for mobile payment fans. Osama Bedier, who jumped to Google this February after serving as PayPal’s vice president of platform, mobile, and new ventures, led much of the demonstration for Google Wallet.

Bedier, who is now Google’s VP of payments, sat down with me afterward for a quick video interview and explained why Google moved ahead with NFC, why it’s uniquely positioned to grow the momentum for NFC and why Google is not sweating competing efforts from the carriers or PayPal, who he said are all welcome to join Google’s open platform.
