After launching a mobile wallet app, ‘SBI Buddy’, for smartphone users, State Bank of India will soon come out with a similar software tool for customers with feature phones, a top official said. The soon-to-be launched mobile wallet app will be called ‘Batua’. “Buddy has already been rolled out which can be downloaded on smartphones. We are coming out with another version of Buddy, which has been named ‘Batua’ and will be for feature phone users,” SBI Managing Director Rajnish Kumar told reporters here. “It’s unique feature is that it will be available for feature phone users. We are hopeful that in the next 3 weeks, we should be able to roll out ‘Batua’,” Kumar said. ‘Batua’ will have characteristics of ‘Buddy’ but will be targeted at customers who use feature phones.
