Intel jumps on WAP-wagon

More investments on the way

Today's Jerusalem Post is reporting that market cap giant Intel has invested in Haifa company PassCall, which specialises in WAP (wireless access protocol) technology. According to the newspaper, no financial details of the deal were available, but Intel's money will fund research and development as well as expanding PassCall's presence in the US market. PassCall has a technology dubbed GateWave allowing people to use the Internet on their mobile telephones. But, according to the piece, GateWave is suitable not just for WAP-specific phones, but for ordinary mobiles and SmartPhones. The browsing capability does not need a Web site to be specifically WAP-enabled. You can find the entire Jerusalem Post piece here. ® See also Intel explains investment plans
