In order to use mobile devices for business application, mobile applications and standard have grown fast – so called m-Commerce that normally uses WAP protocol to access remote web site wirelessly. WAP protocol has moved from WAP 1.0 to WAP 2.0 in order to lessen the developer’s load by simplifying and forcing language independency. WML has been used to provide web-like user interface to mobile device on WAP 1.0. And, cHTML has been used exclusively in NTT DoCoMo service.
