UMTS applications from Siemens: The new network technology shows its true colors
The UMTS applications from Siemens IC Mobile were one of the highlights of the CeBIT in Hanover. On various PDAs (personal digital assistants), visitors to the fair had the opportunity of testing six UMTS applications, which currently include about 20 mobile operators in their UMTS trial networks: City on Air, multimedia messaging, animated chat, video sequences, games, and multimedia shopping. The crystal clear reproduction of city maps, images, and texts on the color display of the PDAs will surely have turned many fair visitors into an instant UMTS fan.
