Hoiley.com is the worlds first WAP Community

from the going-wireless dept

Hans writes “The website Hoiley.com, created by German startup ManAndMedia.com, is the world’s first WAP Community. In a style like Geocities, users can come to sign up and create a free WAP Page. An easy to use WAPbuilder makes it possible to run your own WML Page within a few minutes without any knowledge of WML.

Hoiley.com goes live in January 2000. WAP stands for (W)ireless(A)pplication(P)rotocoll and makes it possible to access websites on any WAP ready mobile phone.

Additionally Users can get a free YourName@hoiley.com Email, which is ofcourse also accessable from any WAP mobile.” This post goes against my direct advertising for a site rules, but I think it’s interesting. I wonder if we really need a Geocities for mobile devices? Of course, at the time of posting, I can’t actually get to the website to check it out.
