“AT&T will be bringing a mobile replacement for credit cards, checks and cash soon to that AT&T-branded phone, as the carrier is partnering with some big-name banks for what could be the largest mobile banking push in the US so far. AT&T customers will be able to manage bank accounts and pay bills through Wachovia, BancorpSouth, Regions Financial and SunTrust banks using an application on their handset (we’re thinking a J2ME app). The good news: AT&T’s partnering with three of the top U.S. banks combined with free usage of this new mobile banking app will most likely draw more customers to its wireless Internet services — and we’re sure AT&T had that in mind here.”
About time. The Japanese have been doing this for ages.
So how long until its possible to go around with just your phone and no wallet?
