Mobile payment and banking press releases this week

Thanks to my friend Philppe Lerouge that compiled a good collection of GWC press releases (Read here), I was inspired to make my own collection specifically focussing on those that I believe will have the biggest bearing on banking services in emerging countries. This is my list of the most important press:

> BOKU partners with Philippines telco Globe for m-payments (Read here)
> Oberthur Technologies partnered supplier of mobile commerce platforms Utiba to create a suite of mobile money services (Read here)
> Western Union certifies Fundamo and mCheck as the first vendors that can connect to their infrastructure (Read here)
> Gemalto security solution selected by MTN Mobile Money running Fundamo (Read here)
> Zain's ZAP solution wins GSMA Awardfor Mobile Money Services (Read here)
> Vodafone announces the launch of mPesa in South Africa on Vodacom (Read here)
> Roamware announces Mobile Payment Plans with Interoperability issues (Read here)
> Nokia announces their partner bank in India for Nokia Money: Yesbank (Read here)
> Yellow Pepper partner with Fundamo to launch mobile wallets in Latin America (Read here)
