Roadmap for Wireless Applications

All wireless applications have one thing in common: They're small, mobile, and have a personal quality. Wireless applications connect radio devices to content sources and are best exploited in mobile situations. Wireless applications are ultimately distinguished by the class of wireless device and type of network they use, as shown in Table 1. Targeted applications run on the key wireless devices: web phones, handhelds, pagers, voice portals, communicating appliances, and the web PC. These application families also can run on any of the WAN, LAN, or PAN wireless networks. Keeping the technology of devices, networks, and applications in mind will help you give your mobile audiences new purpose with the wireless applications you build.
