Lloyds TSB: first for mobile banking in the UK


blogging about mobile the other day, I was surprised but pleased to see that Lloyds TSB claim to be the first to offer banking on the phone:

What surprised me even more is that they are already advertising this on the net with celeb Nicki Chapman in The Sun

Bottom-line: this is not the first banking on mobile in the UK – I’d give that to the O2/Barclaycard trials in London or to the RBS Monitise service – but it is the first mobile banking service to actually get some investment and advertising over here as a mainstream offering.
