Betanews bericht dat de Microserfs hun Mobile Explorer software hebben aangekondigd. Met deze zak vol internet applicaties laat je je mobieltje gezellig tegen het internet babbelen:
Microsoft aims to enable the use of the Internet, e-mail, location services, and e-commerce over mobile phones with hopes of Mobile Explorer becoming the stepping-stone for developing applications for new wireless technologies. Current services such as Microsoft Exchange Server, the BackOffice family, and MSN Mobile Services, will also be integrated into Mobile Explorer. In a press release issued today, Harel Kodesh, vice president of the Productivity Appliance Division at Microsoft said, "Microsoft's goal is to enable secure information access any time, anywhere, from the device of the users' choice."
Mobile Explorer will come in two versions, one for "smart phones" and the other for Web-ready "feature phones." Mobile Explorer for feature phones will include an operating-independent, browser based system. It will be the first dual-mode microbrowser that can display both HTML- and WAP (Wireless Application Protocol) 1.1-authored Internet content. Mobile Explorer for smart phones will include a full suite of personal management and Internet tools in addition to features offered on feature phones.
