 Mobility Introduction and Glossary (IBM)
  Don't let the rigors of business travel or the joys of telecommuting keep you from answering e-mail, checking price and inventory information on the Web or keeping tabs on the competition. But keep in mind that portability can bring with it compromises, the most important of which is speed: laptop computers and the modems they use typically are slower than their desktop counterparts.

 SyncML
  "In the Mobile Information Society you should be able to access your personal files, data and e-mail from the device at hand - anywhere at anytime. Not only should you be able to read the data, but also change it, and have changes updated on all your appliances. From your mobile device to the networked device, everything should be collected, processed and send on the fly without complications. As an example, e-mail read on your handheld computer should automatically be shown as a read e-mail on your desktop. Therefore, several world leaders in communication and computing have joined forces to make a new synchronization protocol that makes it possible to get ubiquitous access to updated information with any application."

Wireless Computing
 All about the Mobile Bluetooth (mobilebluetooth.com)
  "Bluetooth is an alliance between mobile communications and mobile computing companies to develop a short-range communications standard allowing wireless data communications at ranges of about 10 meters. Bluetooth will encompass both a standard communications interface and a low-cost computer chip. It is a cross between the DECT (Digital European Cordless Telephone) and iRDA (infra Red Data Association) technologies. Bluetooth was conceived by Ericsson, but founded by Nokia, Ericsson, IBM, Intel and Toshiba. The Bluetooth Interest Group has since been joined by hundreds of companies including One2One; a UK mobile network operator, Motorola, Qualcomm, Compaq, Dell, 3Com Palm, VLSI, Xircom, Psion Dacom and Lucent. Bluetooth does NOT involve mobile network transactions- its spectrum is freely available to use in the unlicensed spectrum area (at 2.45 gigahertz). Data transmission speeds using Bluetooth are expected to be between 720 kbps and one megabit per second (Mbps)."
 AllNetDevices.com -- Nothing But Net Devices (internet.com)

 Bluetooth Technology
  Bluetooth is the codename for a technology specification for small form factor, low-cost, short range radio links between mobile PCs, mobile phones and other portable devices. The Bluetooth Special Interest Group is an industry group consisting of leaders in the telecommunications and computing industries that are driving development of the technology and bringing it to market.
 GSM Data Knowledge (Intel Corporation)
  "GSM, which stands for Global System for Mobile Communications, is a digital cellular radio network operating in over 200 countries world-wide. It provides almost complete coverage in western Europe, and growing coverage in the Americas, Asia and elsewhere. Of special interest is the capability of the GSM network to be used for data computing. Most people think of voice calls when they think of cellular phones. But because GSM is digital, you can connect your GSM-enabled phone to your laptop computer and send or receive e-mail, faxes, browse the Internet, securely access your company's LAN/intranet, and use other digital data features including Short Messaging Service. Because it uses radio frequencies, GSM is a wireless platform, in contrast to technologies which require connecting one's laptop modem to a telephone outlet to use the land-based telephone network. This means users of GSM can be fully mobile, and do wireless data computing anywhere, without worrying about adapters, telephone jacks, cables, etc."
 GSM Links (Hannu Valtanen Oy)
  Includes links to GSM Specifications, Documentation, Frequencies, Codes and Terms, Security, Data, etc., as well as links to information on High Speed Circuit Switched Data (HSCSD), General Packet Radio Services (GPRS), Enhanced Data Rates for Global Evolution (EDGE), Universal Mobile Telephone Service (UMTS) and Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA)

 WAP - a quick study (Computerworld)
  "The Wireless Application Protocol (WAP) is a set of specifications, developed by the WAP Forum, that lets developers using Wireless Markup Language (WML) build networked applications designed for handheld wireless devices. WAP was designed to work within the constraints of these devices: a limited memory and CPU size; small, monochrome screens; low bandwidth; and erratic connections. WAP is a de facto standard, with support from more than 200 vendors."
 WAP - Links (Hannu Valtanen Oy)
  Includes links to WAP applications, WAP browsers, WAP servers/editors, WAP WBMP
 WAP on the Web (Nokia)
  "Wireless Application Protocol (WAP) provides a universal open standard for bringing Internet content and advanced Value Added Services to mobile phones and other wireless devices. As such, WAP is at the heart of Total Connectivity usage."
 Wireless Application Protocol (WAP) Forum Ltd.
  "Digital wireless user agents such as mobile phones have become very popular in recent years. Technically speaking, mobile phones are no longer just phones; they are communication devices capable of running applications and communicating with other devices and applications over a wireless network. The Wireless Application Protocol (WAP) specifies two essential elements of wireless communication: an end-to-end application protocol and an application environment based on a browser. The application protocol is a layered communication protocol that is embedded in each WAP-enabled user agent. The network side includes a server component implementing the other end of the protocol that is capable of communicating with any WAP user agents." (Nokia)
