MRT mobile tickets soon to hit the rails, but when?

I got this lead from one of my visitors at Technobiography:

November 15, 2007 – OMI Mobile Solutions conducted its internal live test at MRT North Ave. Station to Taft Ave. Station. Succesfully activated OMI E-Wallet and purchase single journey MRT mobile tickets for SMART Communications and SUN Cellular.

Some notes:

* Not much detail about the live test in the omniprime website. Omniprime was the group behind the mobile cinema tickets.
* Good to see the system integration between MRT, Smart and most especially SUN!. This is the kind of collaboration we’re looking for to make more robust and more inclusive mobile services (instead of the giant telcos developing services that don’t work with the rival telco — we want services that are interoperable)
* It turns out Omniprime is the system integrator for the MRT mobile tickets which I discussed back in August 2007.

Visit Omniprime for the article (http://www.omniprime.net/).
Omniprime, how did the testing go? Let us know when it’s publicly available.

Goodluck!
