ok, if you would have to compare wap and imode technically, what

very interesting: what are the main differences in the business model
of the two in your opinion?
most people say imode is so sucessful because its based on HTML
(and even easier then HTML) which makes it easier for developers
to create content for imode which makes the service more
attractive to users as well on the other side (because there
is just more to see on imode).
