With the technology, users would be able to program their WAP (wireless application protocol)-enabled mobile phones to access e-commerce sites wirelessly by simply finding appropriate Web sites with their PC, clicking on a mobile/WAP icon on the site and typing in their mobile phone number. The settings would then be automatically programmed into the WAP-enabled phone over the air, Nokia said in a statement.
Beta testing of over-the-air programming of mobile WAP devices is being conducted with its partners, Nokia said.
The technology, which will be integrated into Nokia's WAP Server, is expected to hit the market in the first half of this year, Nokia said.
Special security technology, WTLS (Wireless Transportation Layer Security), installed in the server would protect users from fraud, Nokia said.
