protocols and the limitations of the devices" said Dieter Kneffel, Chief Technology Officer at MoPilot. "However, 3G is a huge advancement. It
enables us to create a far superior system, employing use of colour and detailed graphics to increase the aesthetic appeal of our products. More importantly, we now can make use of the technical advancements, facilitating us in creating more sophisticated and potentially limitless applications."
Asked about the relationship between O2 and MoPilot, Martin Tufft, Head of Applications and Services, MANX Telecom answered: "We are pleased to have MoPilot as a Partner on this Isle of Man Project which is a forefront of 3G development in Europe. We recognize the importance of offering choice for our customers. This choice is in fact, offered through the range and differentiation of the content we will provide. We believe MoPilot will help us to achieve that."
"With fast access speeds and highly capable devices, our services are undergoing a huge evolution. We strive to produce the solutions that our customers demand, and this now is possible. Contemplating the incredible
array of content on the Internet today, we are clear about the potential of 3G. Therefore we are delighted to lend our full support to the technology. With the backing of major operators, our technology will be an instant success
and immediately popular with the majority of cellphone users."
