ClairMail Expands Mobile Web Support to Android and Blackberry Devices

ClairMail expands mobile Web support to Android and Blackberry devices, with goal for furthering mobile banking adoption among all smartphone users.

Mobile banking and payment solutions provider ClairMail, Inc. (Novato, Calif.), announced an update to the ClairMail mobile banking platform that extends its mobile Web solution to Android and Blackberry devices. Based on its SmartRendering technology, the ClairMail platform now supports what the vendor calls a device-optimized version of the ClairMail mobile Web experience for Blackberry and Android-based phones, such as the Curve, Storm, Pearl, Motorola DROID and Google's Nexus One, with plans to support other devices as they are introduced to market.

ClairMail already provides mobile Web banking functionality on several hundred handsets, including the iPhone.

"Smartphone owners are blazing the path for mobile banking and payments " they 'get it' and use such services habitually," said Mark Schwanhausser, senior analyst in charge of multichannel financial services for Javelin Strategy & Research, which forecasts that 52 percent of mobile phone owners will use a smartphone by 2014.

"Our new highly optimized support for the Blackberry and Android operating systems demonstrates our commitment to furthering mobile banking adoption amongst all smartphone users," said Donald MacCormick, VP of Product and Engineering at ClairMail, in a press release.
