Mobile Web services offer new possibilities and extraordinary rewards for the mobile telecommunications market.

Service–oriented architectures (SOAs) implemented with Web services are fundamentally changing business processes supported by distributed computing. These technologies bring forward the promise of services available at any time, in any place, and on any platform. Through mobile Web services, operators can offer new value–added services for their users, explore new business opportunities and increase revenue and customer retention.This expands the commercial opportunities for developers to promote their applications and enables solutions that work seamlessly across computer and mobile environments.

Mobile Web Services is a comprehensive, up–to–date and practical guide to adapting mobile Web services–based applications. The expert author team from Nokia explain in depth the software architecture and application development interfaces needed to develop solutions for these technologies.
