Obopay Working on Complete Mobile Payment Service for QUALCOMM's BREW(R) Solution
    PALO ALTO, Calif., April 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Obopay, which has introduced a
complete mobile payment service that will transform consumer commerce, today
announced the Company is working to develop Obopay's mobile payment solution
for QUALCOMM's BREW solution.
Obopay's innovative service created for BREW will be available across a
wide variety of advanced handsets. With the Obopay mobile payment service,
consumers can immediately and instantly get, send and spend money using their
mobile handset. The account can be managed completely from the mobile handset
so users can check their balances, request payments from other handset users
and view their transaction history.
Obopay has also joined the BREW Developer Alliance Program at the Elite
BREW Developer level. QUALCOMM's multi-tiered membership program is designed
to support developers large and small throughout the entire process of
creating and marketing wireless applications.
"Our relationship with QUALCOMM is a critical step in our efforts to
transform consumer commerce from an idea into reality -- making the mobile
handset the central instrument to get, send and spend money," said Carol
Realini, CEO of Obopay. "Joining the BREW Developer Alliance Program at the
prestigious 'Elite' level will give us extensive resources and critical
insights into the distribution and enhancement of our services for operators
and their subscribers around the world."
"Obopay's idea of a peer-to-peer mobile payment service that can be
managed completely on the phone along with instant, up-to-date account
information demonstrates great vision," said Tom Grieco, senior director of
developer relations for QUALCOMM Internet Services. "We look forward to
working with Obopay to drive usage and innovation in the realm of mobile
payment services."
