Open Mobile Terminal Platform (OMTP), a mobile operator sponsored forum, announced on Wednesday (2 May) that it has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the Korea Wireless Internet Standardization Forum (KWISF), which consists of Korean wireless operators and handset makers, the creators of WIPI (Wireless Internet Platform for Interoperability).
The WIPI platform is said to provide a standardised environment for implementing applications downloaded via the wireless Internet on mobile terminals.
Specifically, for two years, USTR negotiated with the South Korean government over the Ministry of Information and Communication's (MoIC) plan to require all cell phone services to use only the so-called wireless Internet platform for interoperability (WIPI
