Mobiel, mobieler, mobielst...

Uit de e-payments nieuwsbrief:

Euronet Worldwide and Giesecke & Devrient GmbH have announced details of a new global marketing agreement for electronic payment solutions via mobile phones. This partnership will twin Euronext's Electronic Recharge, Mobile Banking and Electronic Bill Payment solutions with G&D's SIM Toolkit technology.

These solutions enable the recharging of prepaid mobile airtime from a number of locations, from mobile phones, to ATMs and the Internet. Mobile Banking enables access to an account through the customer's mobile phone, while EBP enables customers to be informed of their bill payments via SMS (short-message service). G&D's SIM Toolkit based mobile applications allow m-banking options such as account balances and statements, and even transactions with various banks.
