Shaping the future of finance

Is mobile banking the future or a waste of money?

Posted an article on Mobile Banking on SWIFTCommunity today that talks about the four levels of banking I see out there today on mobiles.

There's basic text messaging, such as GCash in the Philippines:

Then there's a fuller mobile wallet that can make payments easier across credit cards and deposit accounts:

Then there's Bank of America's million users of full mobile banking with balances and more:

And finally there's BBVA's Web2.0 styled mobile apps:

But IBM reckon that people don't want banking on a mobile, so the latter two could be a waste of money?

Don't believe it ... people don't know what they want till they have it.  Once they realise what they can do with instant balance checks at point of sale, they'll start using mobile banking.
