Mobile Banking Updates

Mobile payment madness grips North America
"With fresh venture capital flowing to mobile payment enablers and signs of a viable cashless marketplace developing, will US wireless carriers soon commandeer the person-to-person payment space? Kirk Laughlin reports."

Mobile Financial Services Climbing Out of the Crisis Mire
"Yesterday, I was took part in a panel discussion hosted by InformationWeek, BS&T’s sister publication, about mobile banking and payments. Along with myself were Doug Brown, Bank of America’s SVP, mobile product development; Charles Landry, VP and general manager with VeriSign, the event’s sponsor; and Lori Beck, director, product management, with Western Union."

New mobile banking service, MoBank, set to launch using txttrans system
"MoBank - the brainchild of Steve Townend (ex First Direct and Egg) and Dominic Keen (ex Egg) - is a brand new mobile banking service that works with an existing bank account to let users buy and pay for items using a mobile phone. It works by connecting users, via the Internet on a mobile phone, to a secure transactional payment system developed by txttrans. Users pre-register a debit or credit card, and receive a secure PIN to access the MoBank service from a mobile phone, so they don’t have to enter card details every time a transaction is made."

Wincor Nixdorf and Sevenval form m-banking partnership
"This partnership will allow Sevenval, a leading technology specialist in mobile Internet portals, to expand its international activities. As one of the world's leading suppliers of IT solutions for banks, Wincor Nixdorf is expanding its PC/E Retail Banking Solution Suite with Sevenval's multichannel output technology. In the future this will allow Wincor Nixdorf to map retail banks' Internet portals and services on mobile terminals and home entertainment systems."
