In reply to Michael Mahoney
Paying for everyday occurances is typically done with cash or debit card or credit card. True m-commerce is the application of these common ubiquitous transactions via a mobile device... Mobile phone or PDA, not using a PC to buy a book on Amazon. Paying for coffee, tolls, parking meters, lunch and virtually any retail purchase you can accomplish with a card now will be accomplished via a mobile device with an electronic cash wallet and encrypted SMS credit or debit numbers. The key is accepting the fact that mobile devices can accomplish much, much more than the mag stripe bank card in your wallet.

The banking sector has for too long been constricting the development of M-comm by not certifying personal mobile devices to execute transactions accross their networks or POS devices. The Banks have been using 1960s magstripe technology in a very profitable manner ...Why change and have to spend to upgrade to the 21st century? www.tvac.net/philosophy.htm
