Mobile phones have come a long way in a short time. Originally they were brick like accessories with a short battery life and poor reception. Now we can spend hours chatting to our loved ones at the top of Ben Nevis on a phone the size of a Kit-Kat.

The Internet has also come a long way in a similar amount of time, from a text-based home of the geeks to a multimedia, multi-million pound phenomenon used by the masses.

Thanks to the development of the WAP browser, these two technologies have been brought together allowing the mobile phone owner to access the World Wide Web and check email from just about anywhere. It's a pretty big marketplace too. It is estimated that there are nearly 100million people worldwide with access to wireless Internet.

Using a mobile phone online can be rewarding, but frequently not particularly straightforward. Many of the features found on the Internet via your PC are available, in a simpler form, via your phone. However some of the main networks will do anything they can to keep you locked in to their circle of partner sites, which is a shame when there is so much more to be discovered.

The main purpose of this book is to be a day to day companion, small enough to fit in your pocket next to your phone. Within these pages you will find hundreds of useful sites, on a range of subjects, reviewed and sorted by category.

This book also provides information about the future of mobile Internet services, some facts about the main UK service providers, some tips on setting up and running a email accounts on your phone and even a beginners guide to creating your own WAP site.
