Not quite there with WAP

Advantages: Check travel scores lottery
Disadvantages: slow and expensive

This is a basic review on WAP itself, this was the only category that I could find to place it in, if anyone knows where else let me know. Enjoy! WAP is this year's biggest hype, with mobile phone companies and shops bragging that it's the "hippest" wa ...

Review of Member Advice on the Future of WAP

---INFORMING YOU OF THE FUTURE---

Advantages: Instant viewing of all websites, no matter how many pictures on it
Disadvantages: Very expensive, in excess of 50p a minute

When you think of WAP (wireless application protocol), you think of a really slow internet connection via a mobile which cost a bomb. Well, that, in short, is right. So I am about to inform you who don't already know about GPRS (General Packet Radio Se ...
