Advantages: cheap surfing
Disadvantages: slow transfer
I have read some other opinions on Wap phones and I find them to be over-critical. I know there are some problems with the service, not least of which being the very slow data transfer rate and the lack of good WAP sites available. I think we have to bear in mind that htis is a new technology and it will only get better, just look how computers have progressed in the past decade.
It is important to remember that until a couple of years ago not many people had mobile phones, they were large, expensive and the call quality was not very good.
Now we have a huge range of good quality, cheap mobile phones with excellent call quality. The new WAP phones are a huge leap in technology, and I find them extremely useful for keeping in contact and finding informatoin whilst I am on the move. Now I don't need to have a laptop computers, a phone and and expensive link cable, I can "surf" from a cheap mobile phone at cheap rates.
WAP is here to stay. I think it is great and although somewhat limited at the moment it is only going to get better.
