WAP Is Crap

Remember that? WAP was so overhyped that when it finally hit the market it couldn’t help but be a let down. The folks over at Wireless Newsfactor think that WAP could make a come back but it would need a new name. Guys, we have news for you, WAP does have a new name, it’s called M-Services. Ok that’s not exactly true, but M-Service is an attempt to move away from the WAP moniker. WAP doens’t need a new name. The industry should drop the name all together except where it helps technical discussions. What consumers will really respond to is applications like email, picture messaging, buddy lists, etc.
