At the Cebit trade show in Hannover today, IBM and Nokia gave the first demonstration of a Wireless Application Protocol (WAP) mobile phone device accessing Lotus Notes.
WAP makes Internet access from mobile devices easier. The demo, based on Wireless Domino Access technology from Lotus, Nokia?s WAP server and new 7110 handset, allows mobile phone users to access their key data resources whilst on the move.
The product allows data from both Lotus Domino hosted databases and the Internet to be accessed and presented to users via WAP phones.
It also allows Domino based data resources to convert into a format suitable for the phone?s display and allows users to retrieve and access applications, such as email, calendar and directory services.
Pertti Lounamaa, vice president of Nokia?s wireless software solutions division, said: " WAP technology introduces a new freedom to the way we can interact with data and because WAP is an open standard available to all mobile handset manufacturers, users will soon be able to connect to corporate data and the Internet regardless of time and place."
