WAP / Web Browser definition

Also known as "Wireless Internet", "Wireless Web", or "Mobile Web". This feature means that the phone contains mini-browser software that will let you navigate various services through the Internet, shown on the phone's display.

Most older phones with this feature can only display "WAP" pages specifically designed for phones - they cannot display most full web sites.

Many newer phones can also display full web sites, although how well the page fits on the display varies depending on the mini-browser software.

Some traditional web sites do offer versions specifically designed for phones, however frequently only a fraction of the content or services are offered in the wireless version, such as features that are time- or location-sensitive.

Several different standards exists: HDML, WML, cHTML, and xHTML. Older phones support HDML and WML. Most new phones support WML and xHTML. Some phones also work with cHTML, the standard behind NTT DoCoMo's i-Mode service, which is found in Japan and parts of Europe.

xHTML, which is related to WAP 2.0, is the standard that the industry is converging on.
