BlueGiga Makes Point with WRAP Installation for Symbian, Java Phones

6/17/2003 - BlueGiga, a Finnish company developing and marketing wireless local-area network technology products, is releasing an Installation Point application for all Bluetooth-enabled mobile phones running Symbian and Java. The released Installation Point application can be run on company's WRAP (Wireless Remote Access Platform) Access Server products, offering companies a quick and easy method for distributing Symbian and Java mobile phone applications to end-users. The installation methodology for end-users is extremely simple: send business card - receive application - use application.

The Install Point application in the BlueGiga WRAP Access Server can automatically distribute any Symbian or Java phone applications, such as location-specific information, Java games etc. to mobile phone users after the user sends a Business Card over Bluetooth from the mobile phone to a WRAP Access Server. "The most suitable market for this application are companies distributing or looking a way to distribute Symbian or Java applications for users mobile phones directly without using public networks. Even industrial companies could utilize the inherent simplicity of the Installation Point by integrating a man-machine interface for controlling or monitoring some industrial device with these new smart mobile telephones," says BlueGiga General Manager Tom Nordman.
