ANZ have recently launched M-Banking, ANZ Mobile Phone Banking, giving bank customers secure, instant access to account information.
This is big news for Friday spenders who can now be notified when their scheduled salary goes in and when to hit the nightlife.
ANZ Mobile Phone Banking has been launched in two flavours, a secure Java application named M-Banking – which is set for continued development as ANZ’s standard mobile platform – and it’s handicapped sibling TXT Banking, a handshake of cryptic SMS’s to gain basic account information.
This is great news for mobile users, except the Sony Ericsson P1i, who are presented with “Download Failed. I’m sorry, but your phone does not support M-Banking” when downloading the M-Banking application. In the meantime Sony Ericsson P1i users can register for TXT Banking to access critical banking information.
I hope ANZ get onto solving this issue very soon as I’m confident this message will be appearing on other mobile devices. Are you an ANZ customer? What are your thoughts on ANZ M-Banking? More importantly how long will it remain free?
