Top three mobile application threats

Lucent has hopped into the Netscape camp in order to build an Internet portal for mobile phones and organisers. The limited screen real estate of these devices means that they're going to need special-purpose Web technologies if they're going to browse the Web, so potentially this is a major win for Netscape over Microsoft. The new portal will be called Zingo, and will use Netscape's Custom Netcenter to build a home/start page for mobile users. So you could say that's another design loss for Microsoft, and a win for Netscape, which is presenting Netcenter as the raw material for other companies to produce their own customised portals. Lucent is working with Spyglass and Canadian outfit Wyrex Communications on the portal, and will be offering it to network providers. Zingo will use Spyglass Prism technology and Bell Labs' PhoneBrowser to turn HTM into voice content. A beta will be on show at Supercomm 99 in Atlanta next month. ®
