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.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Windows 10 / HP Spectre

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Mark Escubio

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

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