Habib Bank AG Zurich (HBZ) has today announced that its banking services will be available to its customers over their electronic PDA’s.

The new service launches today in association with the PDA manufacturer Palm and will be known as HBZpda. The service fits in with HBZ’s range of other multimedia services including, HBZweb, HBZwap and HBZgsm. These services are available to the bank’s customers virtually free of charge and can be accessed from anywhere in the world.

Stuart Maughan, General Manager, Palm Europe Ltd, Middle East Branch insisted that the move by HBZ reflects the regions thirst for technological developments. He said, “as this region embraces technology we see a number of exciting advancements. GPRS was launched last year within the United Arab Emirates and Habib Bank AG Zurich is the first to embrace this technology and provide banking services for mobile devices. Using wireless LAN technology, Etisalat have also just announced their plans to provide between 30 and 50 Hot Spots in shopping malls and other public places.”

“As our customers become increasingly mobile they are demanding 24 hour management of their accounts wherever they may be worldwide. These new services offer over eighty user driven options at your fingertips with the highest security in the region,” added Amer A. Farid, the assistant vice president of HBZ.
