Hope someone could help me here with this. I am confuse with those 3 mention in the topic, WAP, Wi-Fi and GPRS. whats the difference between those 3?

The other day i just tested XOOPS under a PDA phone with Wi-Fi. and everything seems good just that its not resolutin friendly tats all.

I searched for the module called Avantgo. How far can the module go? Can it make XOOPS site more PDA friendly? like list out the latest news, events and stuff?

Something like the recent WAP module would be nice. I am still not familiar with Wi-Fi yet. Just playing it around but I hope XOOPS can put this into development. PDA xoops.

Wi-Fi is a Wireless LAN Technology,
GPRS is technology for data services in GSM .

where as WAP (Wireless Application Protocol) is a protocol (something like http) for accessing web through mobile.




wireless links

Its a Theme.... not a Module


But the Hack for switch the theme for the user on fly is for 2.0.9.2 but you can just cut out the things commented in ### PDA HACK ### and add it into your files :)
