Under the terms of the agreement, NorstarMall.ca and MobileQ will jointly develop a wireless enabled version of NorstarMall.ca, on MobileQ's XMLEdge software platform.

The wireless version of NorstarMall.ca will be accessible through any Web-enabled wireless devices such as including PCS phones, Personal Digital Assistants, Palm, and Windows CE devices.
