"IBM, Xerox Corp. and upstarts such as NetMorf Inc. are stepping in where wireless carriers have failed to deliver with packaged solutions that give users access to corporate data from gadgets such as pagers, cell phones and other handheld devices."
"At the CTIA Wireless show in New Orleans this week, IBM plans to introduce the first packaged product to use transcoding technology developed in the company's Pervasive Computing Group."
"Websphere Transcoding Publisher translates data into a wide array of protocols and languages so it can be viewed via smart phones and handheld devices, officials at the Armonk, N.Y., company said. The server-side software, due to ship at the end of March, will run on AIX, Linux, Solaris and Windows 2000."
