WAP stands for "Wireless Application Protocol", and is a technical standard designed to allow the content of the Internet to be viewed on the screen of a mobile device such as mobile phone handsets, personal organisers and pagers. The information and services available are stripped down to their basic text format to ensure rapid loading to the mobile phone. Mobile phones in the UK use a WAP browser which is a programme which allows viewing of WML pages, similar to the web browser on your computer but designed for mobile phones in the UK. When you have bought a mobile phone with Wap facilities you may have heard of WAPWorld which is an independent WAP gateway and portal offering you the world of the wireless web on your mobile phone. Wap mobile phones are now be priced at cheap prices compared to when they were first released and can be useful for viewing your email while on the move.

Summary of Wap

WAP is a communications protocol and application environment. It can be built on any operating system including PalmOS, EPOC, Windows CE, FLEXOS, OS/9, JavaOS etc. WAP was designed for -- intermittent coverage, small screens, low power consumption, wide scalability over bearers and devices, and one-handed operation -- are still valid in 3G networks.
