Mobile Banking Updates - Nov 3

Mitek Systems: My Favorite Way to Play the Mobile Banking Boom
"Back in January, I revealed that the mobile banking industry was in a period of rapid transformation. And yet, most investors were completely unaware. Fast-forward and not too much has changed. Sure, Google’s (Nasdaq: GOOG) launch of its highly anticipated near-field communications (NFC) application – Google Wallet – has people buzzing about the potential for mobile payments. But as my colleague, Justin Fritz, recently revealed, mass-market adoption for NFC isn’t happening as quickly as predicted."

Killer App may not be an app after all
"Over the course of the past several months, we have written profusely about the adoption rates of mobile banking on mobile devices. These devices have been segmented into ‘feature phones’ (that is a fancy way of saying a non-smartphone), Smartphones, and tablets. Between 2009 and 2010, we saw a significant pause in the adoption of mobile banking and online commerce on both feature phones and it was effectively non-existent for tablets. However, in 2011, we saw a significant increase in the use of mobile banking as well as an astonishing penetration of tablets into the marketplace."
