Mobile Banking Updates - Apr 12

SmartyPig, the Social Bank, Goes Mobile
"The current economic downturn is the perfect opportunity for this social banking service to go mobile. I love the design and the smart features that leverage the social networking experience to help people save money. The service promises to make people save money by setting specific goals and help them to get there."

China Mobile Partners with Alipay for Mobile Payments
"China Mobile’s Zhejiang branch agreed (NYSE:CHL) to use Alipay’s online payment service. Alipay is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Alibaba Group (HKG:1688), will provide payment services for all mobile service subscriptions. Most analysts agree that 'the cooperation is the first one China Mobile has entered into with a third-party online payment platform operator, said market observers. China Mobile, once the outrunner in the Chinese telecom market, used to take charge of every lucrative business itself in the past 2G era.'"
