CTIA 2010: Billing Revolution – Single Click Credit Card Mobile Checkout


billing revolution at ctia

One of the more innovative companies I’ve seen at CTIA is Billing Revolution and their Single-Click Checkout process. The idea is to simplify the mobile purchasing experience by streamlining the mobile checkout. They don’t have a BlackBerry app but they do facilitate browsers based purchasing which is a great approach because it works across all platforms. So if you’re a BlackBerry app developer, mobile advertiser, retailer, manufacturer, etc. I suggest you check it out because it could optimize your mobile purchasing process. They also have subscription billing and donation billing to accommodate varying needs.

Check out their website.

A special BlackBerryCool thanks goes out to the entire Billing Revolution team for having a great CTIA party on a decommissioned coast-guard boat at pier 38.

So as CTIA winds down I can’t help but wonder where RIM is? The theme of this CTIA is enterprise and applications. The majority of enterprise devices are BlackBerrys and RIM is trying to increase their reputation regarding apps. It seems like such a natural fit. The reality is they don’t even have a booth at the show. I’ve been investigating and all I could find was this gray, windowless, cubicle “meeting room” (MR-412). Now, I know they just held DEVCON last week but does that even matter?

As someone who is deeply tied to RIM and their success this is very frustrating. A typical excuse I’m hearing is that CTIA is not what it used to be…”Just look at the floor” some say. To this I say bollocks, the mobile industry is growing and at an incredible rate, all major handset manufacturers continue to show strong growth, and the outlook is great.

One of them, Earzee, is a wristband with a nub that comes out and wraps around your fingers, allowing you to limit the distance to your phone.
