WAP Push is a powerful way to order rich content through SMS. The
customer experience is similar to that of ordering SMS content.=20

Read the product code and short code (the number where you have to send
the SMS to) from a website or magazine. These advertisements also show
you if your phone is supported or not. Send the SMS and you receive an
SMS or WAP Push message. Click on the URL and you receive the content.=20

Usually you order this content for your own phone and you do not have to
bother if the recipient's phone supports clickable embedded URLs in SMS.

The European market is much more event based than the Japanese that
tends to be subscription based. The customers are already used to
ordering content through SMS, so the next step is ordering it through
SMS/WAP Push and then MMS. A different evolutionary path that in the Far

The ARPU numbers for data services for European carriers are between
10-15%. The SMS model is therefore quite good for both content providers
and carriers.=20
