Wouldn't a smartphone and a secured home server not be better (wallet/bank account) than some 3rd party ATM?

Experience has taught me that individuals who provide services such as ATMs or even online payment services do a crummy job on security. We've witnessed this time and time again. I'd rather rely on myself then on others.

Of course this means working on a more secure variant of the Linux operating system as well as a secure variant of Android would be preferable in order to make this reality. My 2 cents.

Bitcoin is such an incredibly tiny and geographically diffuse economy right now that the odds of physical merchants accepting them is going to remain low for a long time.  An ATM network is a couple of orders of magnitude easier to create than a network of Bitcoin POS terminals.
