Anyone for WAP?

I myself own a Nokia 7110 and used to use its WAP capabilities (until I dropped my phone a few times and now it doesn't seem to work!).

The way a WAP "site" works is that the WML browser on your phone is directed to a set of WML "cards" that reside on a web server somewhere.

WML stands for Wireless Markup Language and is the language used when writing information for WAP enabled phones.

Anyway, you write WAP sites using WML (check out the W3C for more info). Now I suspect most people are reading this article and expecting to a find a nice tutorial on how to write WAP sites etc. Well, sorry to disappoint you all but that ain't gonna happen!

What I'm intending to do in this article is to discuss how far ahead WAP is, and whether we should start considering it as something that we should be developing our systems to use.
