NOt Clear on WAP and how it Affects the 8130
Is this just a description of how our smart phones access teh web, or is there a choice in how we access the web on our 8130's? My webbrwser has bookmarks for WAP and Blackcberry Bookmarks. Whats the diff?
WAP is an open international standard for applications that use wireless communication. Its principal application is to enable access to the Internet from a mobile phone or PDA. A WAP browser provides all of the basic services of a computer based web browser but simplified to operate within the restrictions of a mobile phone, such as it's smaller view screen. The Japanese i-mode system is another major competing wireless data protocol.
So all our browser communication on the bb is in WAP? Or is it mixed, and do we need ot pay attention to what type of standard we use somehow?
Thanks, appreciate your input.
The browser that comes on the BB is a WAP browser. It will render simple regular HTML pages.
An alternative browser is Opera Mini.
