"Dialtone Internet, Inc., a leading provider of Linux dedicated hosting and colocation solutions, today announced that all its Linux Servers and Linux Cluster Servers are being updated to deliver web content to wireless devices. All Dialtone Internet Linux Servers will be WAP/WML (Wireless Application Protocol/Wireless Markup Language) enabled in the coming days."

"WAP phones are driving a market that needs to supply and modify relevant information quickly and clearly. Already the preferred mode of Internet access in Southeast Asia, it is predicted that by 2004 more people will be accessing the Internet via wireless devices than from Personal Computers. Dialtone Internet's Servers' ability to provide content to anyone with an Internet enabled cellular phone or wireless device would add extra value to its customers who want their web sites "Wireless Enabled"."

"Wireless is an exciting and explosive new marketing area. We have a backlog of clients 'panting' for server based infrastructure", said Derek LaFavor, President of The Selling Source, Inc. (http://www.sellingsource.com). "The ability to communicate with selected audiences, in a direct and timely manner, is a marketer's dream come true. We applaud Dialtone Internet for being one of the first to enable server based wireless!"
