Well if you were wondering if Sprint was gearing up for a BlackBerry 7 launch soon you need wonder no longer. They just released their Sprint Mobile Wallet today in App World and the release is really telling. The Mobile Wallet app is limited to the BlackBerry Bold 9930, 9850, and 9330. I am not sure how the BlackBerry Curve 9330 slipped in there but hey that’s for us to speculate. If you have a 9330 and are a Sprint customer please download the Sprint Mobile Wallet app from App World and let us know what it does! It only requires OS 5.0+ which is another conundrum though maybe Sprint meant to select the 9360… On the other hand Sprint does talk about their Mobile Wallet for Android solution here on their website.
Here is how Sprint describes their Sprint Mobile Wallet:
SMW is a product that aggregates payment methods and makes them available as a single-click payment option on a user’s mobile phone. SMW allows Merchants to provide Sprint Customers an easy way to pay for both digital and physical goods. The user will set up an account (PIN secured) with SMW and register each desired payment method to be stored in SMW. When the user shops on his/her mobile phone and proceeds to pay for a good or service, SMW will present the registered payment methods as payment options at the time of checkout.
Let us know what you think!
