The IdeaBridge White Paper Series: WAP Applications Research Project
The future of WAP will be harnessed when two major issues are ultimately resolved. Number one; there must be a reliable, trusted and seamless payment system. And number two, the barriers of infrastructure, cell sites and towers must be mitigated. When an economically-viable worldwide satellite system can reach any spot on the globe on a cost-effective basis, WAP will begin to recognize it full potential. What is WAP? WAP (wireless application protocol) provides a universal open standard which enables users to easily access the Web from the screens of their mobile phones, PDAs or other handheld devices. Limiting there thinking of WAP to just hand phones would be shortsighted. Soon, the WAP standard will be adopted by industry leaders such as Microsoft, Palm and others.
