BlackBerry users that bank with HSBC can now view their balance from their handset.

The free service, which can be accessed from www.m.hsbc.co.uk, is optimised for the display on handsets in BlackBerry's 8000 series, and also allows users to see the past seven days worth of transactions.

As well as their username and password, users will be required to enter an additional unique temporary security code, which is generated by a handheld device supplied to customer by HSBC.

Noel Quinn, head of commercial banking UK, HSBC: "We understand that our business customers need to be able to manage their money on the go, and we aim to provide them with the best technology to make this possible".
