BellAtlantic Mobile operation will use Wireless Application Protocol (WAP) to give its customers access to electronic mail and information from their cellphones and to simplify phone upgrades. Bell Atlantic will deploy, Inc.’s microbrowser and associated server software with Motorola phones. The service should be commercially available early next year. Customers will need to buy the new Motorola phones in order to use it. Using’s UP.Browser, phone subscribers will be able to view specially tailored Internet and intranet content on the display screens of their phones. The micro-browser works with’s UP.Link server software, which delivers content using wireless markup language (WML) rather than the hypertext markup language (HTML) used for most World Wide Web content. Bell Atlantic is at least the fourth US wireless carrier to announce plans to use’s micro-browser. Sprint PCS and Nextel have announced plans for trials in the fourth quarter. SouthernLink, a regional carrier, has also announced plans for the technology, the spokesman told Newsbytes.
