Visitors to PC Advisor web site condemn WAP

Exclusive poll confirms disappointment

It’s official. “WAP sucks and has been completely over-hyped.” So say more than four fifths of visitors to the PC Advisor web site in an exclusive interactive poll.

The mobile phone may be the killer application of the new millennium but the first net-capable versions are proving to be as popular as Tony Blair at a WI conference.

Some 83.7% of participants denounced the fledgling wireless protocol as an intense disappointment, with a mere 7.1% jumping to its defence.

The UK’s second biggest operator, BT Cellnet, is claiming 90% of the WAP market in the UK, pulling in 213,000 new customers in the past three months.
