Second generation WAP at the Westel The renewed 777mobile awaits users with colored multimedia pages
Following the February introduction of 777mobile - offering content unique in Hungary - Westel as the first Hungarian mobile service provider launched its new generation WAP service. The special service of the renewed portal can be accessed with Nokia 3650 and naturally it is just as comfortable to use as the color display telephone itself.
The second generation WAP service of Westel’s 777mobile portal is similar to a multimedia newspaper, the front page is determined by the head column (changing every hour) and its color illustration. Links relevant to the time of day or other topical information are also available.
Simultaneously with the introduction of the latest generation WAP service Westel’s customers can freely choose from the multimedia video content and have an even deeper insight into the world of mobile video. The video column of 777mobile offers live programs of television and radio, as well as short reports, movie clips, tales and Westel promotion video programmes.

During the Christmas holidays more than ever visitors logged on the Westel 777mobile WAP portal: on December 25 - for the first time since the launch of 777mobile - the main page of Westel’s WAP portal was downloaded more than 200 thousand times in a single day. Within one year 777mobile - compared to figures measured during the 2002 Christmas holidays - tripled its usage.
By now the mobile telephone also functions as center for news and entertainment, but it may also substitute the wallet. Launching 777mobile, Westel proved that by offering the appropriate content, Hungary can be a serious market for the new generation mobile services. : http://www.t-mobile.net/CDA/hungary_westel_culture_fingertips,20,,newsid-2609,en.html?w=1024&h=582
