Those "WAP" devices cant read anything else than "WAP" pages. Its a closed
world within the WWW. Compare this to the bigger world of those handhelds
like the japanese imode. Most successfull ISP in Japan. It works !! 20
million customers or so.

I think a german URL is www.jmode.de. It is called "imode" in Japan.

Havent seen it, must be something like the Nokia Browser with lynx.

Well, in the middle ages, pictures and texts...I am not shure how
this imode thing cant display graphics. Anybody seen imode in action ???
