One of our customers for our mobile email software reads his mail whilst shaving inrepparttar morning. He can find out what has been happening overnight without having to get his computer out, dial in and log on. Another browses whilst tending to his cows, miles from mains electricity. Yet another admits he reads his mail in board meetings. So far luckily no-one has noticed his mobile sitting onrepparttar 133522 desk in front of him.

And there is for WAP, most likely, no new device to buy, either. Nothing additional to weigh down your pockets or to find room for in your briefcase. And it isn't just good for email. You can also look up train timetables, get news & sports results, find medical information, find a restaurant and see what's onrepparttar 133523 TV tonight.

And you can do all this, withrepparttar 133524 one electronic device that most people have with them all ofrepparttar 133525 time - their mobile phone.

So - no new expensive devices are required, no high monthly charges are incurred and there is no waiting. No wonderrepparttar 133526 Mobile Operators aren't impressed!
