Nokia Upgrades to WAP 1.1

Nokia has upgraded mobile operators who are trailing the company's Wireless Application Protocol (WAP) infrastructure products and content to version 1.1 of the specification.

The updated WAP spec was released by the WAP Forum on June 30 after vendors were reluctant to commit to version 1.0, complaining that it was difficult to work with.

While WAP has received a lot of attention, few WAP devices or technologies are currently available. The widespread shift to WAP 1.1 infrastructure products such Nokia's is expected to speed acceptance of the standard for devices.

A variety of vendors have announced they will release WAP 1.1 smart phones and infrastructure products by the end of the year.
