WAP 2.0 is a significant improvement over its predecessor WAP 1.2, and is expected to firmly establish the mobile Internet industry created by the WAP 1.x specification. WAP 2 standard heralds the use of multimedia content over mobile networks, direct access to http sites and complete end-to-end security among others.
