Kenya Data Network to launch Mobile and Internet payment system

The competition on mobile commerce or M-Commerce is heating up locally with KDN, the largest data provider calling journalists to a coacktail dinner today at Serena Hotel. It will be a launch party for an M2M and Mobile POS system called MObipay. KDN seems to have teamed up with some spanish company to localise the already existing system.

This comes after Orange hinting that they are soon loon launching a mobile payment solution like M-pesa. Yu launched Obopay and Zain runs Zap which all have not been able to contain the massive consumer urge for M-Pesa.

KDN lists the solution as also an internet payment gateway and expects to cash on the non-availability of such product locally so hindering internet payments.

What do you think of KDN’s foray into the sector?
