NetSanity and Nokia in Field Trials to Deliver Web-Based Information to WAP-Enabled Mobile Phones

NetSanity, Inc. today announced a plan to link XML and (Wireless Application Protocol) WAP to create a standards-based platform for the delivery of web content to mobile devices. The new technology will enhance the web experience by delivering web-based information onto any wireless device that is mobile-Internet ready.

Nokia and NetSanity will demonstrate the delivery of Digital Pebbles™, or pieces of Internet information, to WAP-enabled mobile phones this month. NetSanity also announced that over 70 content partners and 1500 affiliates have adopted NetSanity's open XML standard, making their content immediately available on the NetSanity SmartBar, NetSanity's current Windows™ desktop product -- and soon on mobile devices. Over the next few months, NetSanity plans to partner with additional wireless hardware manufacturers and telecom carriers to offer NetSanity technology on a variety of mobile devices.  This will allow business users to access Web preferred content from either their PC or mobile devices, enhancing flexibility and productivity.

Mobileinfo Advisory and Comment:

WAP and XML have become defacto standards in the mobile and wireless computing. NetSanity's Digital Pebble concept is interesting. Will NetSanity stay up to bigger XML players already entrenched in this space? Yes, if they can provide unique experience with handheld devices - the trick is in efficient transcoding technology from user experience perspective.
