Mobile wallet offered to UK shoppers – useful or just an expensive way to buy goods and services.

The introduction of paying with your mobile wallet  has initially been launched by Orange and Barclaycard using ones mobile phone.

This shows how important mobile phone and the mobile broadband are becoming and their increasing importance  in our lives. Some say the internet is like oxygen almost an essential for living. Will same apply to the mobile internet and the mobile wallet?

Where will this lead – will we be throwing out our laptops in the future, probably not but they will certainly change. We have already seen the introduction of Ipad1 & 2 by Apple followed by other manufacturers equivalents. Touch screens laptops are here to stay. Acer have a laptop with two touch screens one of which can be used as a keyboard along with other novel ways of moving information, pictures etc. Smart mobile phones are increasingly popular with iPhone4 and Samsung Galaxy S2 in the lead, with others in the market palace.

Smart phones have led to an increase in use of mobile broadband to purchase goods and services. The increase of donations to charities via internet is just one example of this.

This change is fascinating and exciting, it is important to use this technology to help us. I know from personal experience, you can rush out and buy the latest technology only to find it does not live up to the hype. Research it, work out how you can use it on a daily basis, cost it fully, and then make an informed decision, only then will it be a useful tool for you.
