Mobile Banking Updates - Mar 29

Mobile TopUp: The Gateway to Mobile Payments and Remittance
"he mobile world can be divided in two groups, those who pay for their mobile service via a bill after usage (post-paid) and those who pay up front (prepaid). Depending on where you are in the world, the importance of prepaid mobile is either very well known, or perhaps a big surprise. Nearly 70% of the world’s mobile subscriptions are prepaid; however, the uptake varies greatly. For example, in Africa 97% of subscriptions are prepaid, while in the US and Canada, prepaid makes up a mere 13% of subscriptions."

U.S. mobile banking market set for take-off
"Technology companies like Sybase (SY.N) and VeriSign (VRSN.O) are looking to tap robust growth in the nascent U.S. mobile banking market as text message use rises and banks aggressively explore ways to save. Mobile banking services typically allow users to make payments, check balances, transfer money between accounts and generate statements of recent transactions on their handsets."
