Is it just me, or does anyone else think WAP phones are a waste of time..... Whats the point when 3G phones (with full HTML and plugin capabiliy (Flash on your mobile - yes!!!) is already out anyway. although my country havent got it yet.
I say down with .wml markup language, it's just too crap for me.
K, I've finished ranting now, sorry...
Yes, it is probably useless...I don't think that it will continue to be develped... Why would anyone use wap, when they will have the normal Internet???
Anyone who currently invests on wap, is just wasting his money...
Normally I think wap is just expensive and a waste of time, however a couple of years ago - because of a problem with the network, my sim card or my phone, I would get WAP for free, So most days I would spend hours in class reading the news, downloading ringtones and doing stuff like that. I think I filled up my phones memory with 350+ polyphonic ringtones. It was quite helpful, especially being able to read the news and weather anywhere i happened to, being able to google things or go onto online dictionaries.
I don't care for wap. I have a PALM pilot with WIFI and bluetooth etc; and I do notice quite a few of the major sites redirect me to the wap site, and that I do not like.
They lack information and lack the high number of quality pages on the net. You lose out with WAP, so I say don't buy it, unless you have a WIFI phone and don't have to pay for it.
i get my daily news on my WAP phone. it's useful
Well, maybe that it seems useless today... but it's gonna be the standard for ne thext few years...
