vnunet.com Wap returns from the grave. "New pay-per-view service simplifies use and could boost take-up".

MMS is a success! But it can be bigger, faster, says Northstream: "The big breakthrough for MMS still lies ahead, but we have the means to shorten the wait.

Agenzia Giornalistica Italia: "Wind mobile clients now have a new service available to them" mobile color maps. The map is completely searchable and can be enlarged or reduced to see different scales. The service also makes it possible to perform geographic searches for businesses, companies, or services, and obtain traffic reports where available in graphic or text format.

The phone recommended to best accompany the service is the Nokia 7650 with a color screen capable of automatically formatting the information.
