Posted: 21-Feb-2000 [Source: Infoworld]

[Some exciting new announcements are expected this week at CeBit. Here is a preview.]

By Mary Lisbeth D'Amico -- "The fledgling market for WAP-phones and related applications -- which allow users to access Internet-based information via their mobile phones -- will be a major focus of the wireless arena at CeBit. Besides gawking at the latest WAP handsets from the likes of L.M. Ericsson, Motorola, Nokia, and Siemens, attendees also will be offered demonstrations of WAP-based applications. German e-commerce vendor Brokat, for example, will show how users can conduct mobile banking via their WAP-enabled phones.

"IBM and Symbian, meanwhile, will demonstrate publicly for the first time their jointly developed wireless management information systems, including travel and banking applications, the companies said.

"NEC will show a prototype of a videophone, or mobile phone with video capabilities, designed for the upcoming third-generation mobile phone networks, the Tokyo-based company said.

"A special Bluetooth pavilion will show future applications for the emerging wireless radio technology designed to link devices within a range of about ten meters. Siemens, one of the show's largest single exhibitors, will demonstrate prototypes of products using Bluetooth for in-house communications. Nokia and Fuji Photo Film, meanwhile, will demonstrate how images can be sent directly from a digital camera to a mobile phone handset using Bluetooth.

"In the handheld device arena, show highlights will include the first color-screen devices from Palm Computing and a prototype of a personal digital assistant from South Korea's Samsung Electronics that runs the Linux operating system, according to Alison McKenzie, a London-based analyst at market researcher International Data Corp. (IDC).
