Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/04/2012 -- Mobile Commerce is both an opportunity and a threat to carriers as many third parties seek to offer alternatives to network operator based offerings. Competitors include established players such as PayPal as well as many start-up companies. Incumbent operators face the threat of Google and other larger players that wish to dominate this large market opportunity.
In addition, carriers are faced with decisions regarding various technologies, solutions and approaches. There is also a need for careful consideration with respect to the cross-over between mobile advertising/marketing and mobile commerce. Carriers must therefore consider everything from Near Field Communications (NFC), 2D Bar Codes, Abbreviated Dialing Codes, Short Messaging and other customer interface approaches to mobile wallet, integration with financial institutions, debit versus credit, and more.
