Intelligent flash storage arrays

Nokia has announced a deal with Bridge Information Systems that will allow mobile phone access to Bridge's real-time financial information systems. Wisely, the partners are pushing the service first in Asia-Pacific, home of obsessive interest in stock and currency movements. The deal allows the BridgeConnect financial information service to be accessed using the Wireless Application Protocol (WAP) on WAP-enabled mobile phones like the Nokia 7110 media phone. The service, according to Nokia, will be simple and cheap for cellular providers to implement. BridgeConnect delivers real-time financial information, news headlines, currency rates and stock movements, and can be customised for regions and markets. Users can also set up personal portfolios, and so will have the ability to be intensely irritating in bars and restaurants. ®
