NTT DoCoMo announced five new 3G FOMA™ 904i models in its flagship 9 series of mobile phones. The phones come preloaded with mobile banking software based on DoCoMo’s popular i-appli technology.
“The pre-installed i-appli Banking enables easy access to accounts at up to two financial institutions, and makes it possible to check account balances and remit funds, among other mobile banking services. User data, such as bank account numbers, are saved using i-appli, negating the need for re-input each time the service is used. Initially, this service is available for account holders at Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corporation and Mizuho Bank, Ltd. This i-appli can also be downloaded and used with 903i Series and 703i Series models that support Mega i-appli.”
