Those shopping for the latest phones may be interested to hear Barclays has offered some improved services for portable devices.
The bank announced this week that its customers could expect an enhanced version of its online banking system that is optimised for use with mobile phones.
Also on offer as part of the relaunch is a free security software package from Kaspersky, which aims to provide greater protection to web-based financial services.
The revamped version of the Barclays.mobi website is designed to provide easier viewing to account balances, statements and transfers when accessed using a mobile.
Commenting on the news, Barclays' director for electronic banking Sean Gilchrist said: "It's important that customers protect their mobile phones in the same way they do their computers from all threats, by downloading this new software."
