HSBC now offers BlackBerry Banking



HSBC, the bank that everyone thought was switching solely to iPhones for business use, has launched the first UK business banking service optimized for Blackberry users. Optimized for BlackBerry 8xxx devices and above, HSBC users can access real-time balances and transactions for the last seven days on HSBC sterling accounts, and balances on foreign currency accounts. In addition, they will have access to balances on business and commercial credit cards, with seven days worth of transactions per cardholder.

This new service can be accessed from www.m.hsbc.co.uk using the same username and password as regular HSBC internet banking service.

Monilink offers BlackBerry banking app



Banking via mobile sites can take a long time over EDGE networks, but anyone in the UK can now enjoy Monetise’s newest application, Monilink. Many major banks like Natwest and HSBC are already signed on, with many more on the way. Soon they’ll be able to send out text alerts when your bank balance getting dangerously low – certainly a healthy reminder to have for the big spenders out there. A service that British ATMs already offer is mobile top-ups, which Monilink will also provide. Prepaid BlackBerrys might not be popular, but they’re out there and could stand to benefit. Sound promising? There’s more on the way.

“Monitise expects to announce the availability of its services in other territories across the world, as well as the introduction of a range of new services, including inter-account transfers, peer to peer payments, bill settlement, international remittances and contactless (Near Field Communication) payments.”

Royal Bank of Canada launches mobile site


RBC logoThe RBC, or Royal Bank of Canada, has launched a new mobile site for their customers. A completely stripped down home page allows you to access your online banking with all the features that entails, the main RBC site, and their terms and conditions. For those Canadians banking from the Quebec side, it even has a French version. Last year RIM overtook RBC as the largest Canadian company out there. I guess if you can’t beat ‘em, might as well join ‘em.
