Consumer confidence in mobile commerce at all time high
BuzzCity has issues its latest quarterly report on the current trends dominating the global mobile advertising industry. The report reveals the appetite for mobile commerce is at an all-time high, with consumer confidence diminishing previous fears over security of payments – 3% compared to 27% a year ago.
Dr KF Lai, CEO of BuzzCity comments on this shift: “It is clear that consumers are now far more receptive to mobile commerce than ever before; this comes as a result of continuous education by the mobile industry to overcome concerns such as trust and security, combined with falling data costs and increased capabilities of smartphones and tablets.”

Mobile NFC – what’s all the hype about
Mobile NFC has been discussed intensively over the past 24 months. Various players have geared up to enter the payment market, the loyalty and couponing market, the advertising market and other adjacent markets. Billions of dollars are at stake, but the winners are not yet in sight.
In this article, incorporating the results of a recent ADL global survey comprising 70 interviews, we try to shed light on this often-discussed and highly controversial topic.
In theory NFC is nothing more than another technology enabling short-range communication between two devices. Already today passive NFC chips are widely deployed in contactless cards, but for this article we are referring to NFC embedded in mobile devices, which widens the possibilities of NFC considerably:
1. Mobile NFC offers additional use cases: Contactless cards can only be used in the “card emulation” mode, meaning the information stored on the chip can be read. Mobile NFC also offers “tag reading” mode, i.e. scanning and reading of information, and “P2P” mode, i.e. sharing of information between two NFC devices.
2. Mobile NFC offers opportunities for real-time management of multiple applications: Whereas the card is “dumb” in that applications can only be loaded once (i.e. when handing out the card), mobile NFC provides the benefit of being able to manage multiple applications over-the-air, meaning applications can be added, removed, extended or renewed at any time.
