Commonwealth Bank's NetBank is now available as an app on Google Android smartphones

The Commonwealth Bank today released its NetBank mobile banking application for Google Android smartphones.

Initially available for the iPhone, the Commonwealth Bank's mobile banking platform has been modified to work with all Google Android smartphones including the popular HTC Desire, the Desire HD, Samsung's Galaxy S, the Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10, and the Motorola Defy.

The NetBank for Android app features customised screen sizes and resolution, and faster processing times along with a 'remember client' that speeds up the logon process.

The NetBank Android app also allows Commonwealth Bank customers to check their account balances, track recent transaction history, transfer funds, pay bills using BPAY, view current applications, review future transactions, and be advised about any mobile banking outages in advance.

"Approximately 20 per cent of total daily NetBank logons are initiated through mobile devices with iPhone holding pole position to date. However, we have seen the popularity of Android phones double in the past three months, hence this launch," said Commonwealth Bank executive general manager, Quentin Boyes. "Our primary goal is to monitor how our customers are interacting with NetBank and stay one step ahead to deliver the best online customer experiences."

Users with an Android smartphone can download the NetBank mobile banking app from the Android Market, while customers with an iPhone app can download the NetBank for iPhone app from the iTunes App Store.

Commonwealth Bank customers with other internet enabled mobile phones can access mobile banking by going to www.netbank.com.au/mobile on their mobile phone's Web browser.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
