Australians switched off to phone technology
Australians are among the most reluctant people in the world to use mobile phones for online banking and shopping, research has found. News.com.au reports.
"In a survey of people in 14 countries on their attitudes towards using mobile devices for making payments and banking, only the French and the British were more suspicious of the technology.
... The research by Unisys found 78 per cent of Australian respondents would not use a mobile phone to pay a bill, shop or bank online.
In France it was 86 per cent, Britain 79 per cent, Belgium and Italy 77 per cent and in the US 71 per cent. "
