    [FONT=arial,helvetica,sans-serif]There has been an explosive growth in the use of mobile / m-commerce and m-payment, especially in parts of the developing world like Africa and India. Some commentators have even called for banking regulations to be eased, or at least fine-tuned to make m-commerce more attractive. Does this make sense in the current climate? And why has m-commerce been so successful in poorer countries, anyway? What is the future for m-commerce and m-payment in a post-credit-crunch world? Is it traditional banks with branches dealing with physical cash that should be worried about their future?[/FONT]

    One reason could be that mobile applications are cheaper to acquire and maintain than other applications such as a PC/laptop, not to mention that the technology required to power a PC/laptop -the internet, is still hard to come by in most parts of Africa and maybe even india. So a viable/cheaper solution, which already serves a very basic function of voice communication, seems the best bet. Best of both worlds. And I think more functions will even become available with m/applications in the future as the technology is developed/becomes available and accepted/understood by the users.

    The financial institutions in these places had better wake up and smell the coffee regarding what m/applications can do for their business/economy, but knowing a little about such organizations as I do/think I do, they will wait till they kingdom come before they do so

    My 2 cents.
