The e-content Company Announces X-WAP & Partnerships

The e-content company, a division of Interleaf, Inc. announced X-WAP (XML Wireless Application Product), a new BladeRunner application that will allow enterprises to distribute information to any wireless device, extending enterprise e-business.

The e-content company is debuting with demonstrations of content being served live to a variety of mobile and wireless devices including the One Touch Pocket cellular phone from Alcatel; the Palm VII PDA from Palm Computing, Inc., a 3Com Company; the Nokia 9000il Communicator and the 7110 cellular phone; the StarTac cellular phone and PageWriter 2000X digital pager both from Motorola; and the Softbook electronic book from Softbook Press.
