  Posted on Tuesday March 14, @01:09AM Pacific
Net Devices With hundreds of millions of mobile phones in use all over the world at the moment, the market for services targeted at mobile users is mindbogglingly immense. Even simple services find plenty of users, as long as they're useful or fun. Being able to get news, send e-mail or just be entertained wherever you are is extremely attractive to lots of people. The hottest technology today for implementing mobile services is WAP, short for Wireless Application Protocol.

Kannel is an open source WAP gateway. It attempts to provide this essential part of the WAP infrastructure freely to everyone so that the market potential for WAP services, both from wireless operators and specialized service providers, will be realized as efficiently as possible.

Before you jump on the WAP bandwagon I recommend reading Wireless Application Protocol draws criticism. Also, take a look at where wireless protocols are headed at the W3C.
