Nokia, Partners to Make WAP Access Faster

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.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
