Now if you want to check your opponent`s rating in a tournament, without access to computers, you can do so via WAP mobile phones. The FIDE logo appears. The next screen gives you a choice of entering either name or ID number (scroll down if you do not see the entry field for ID numbers). The size limits the screen to one name at a time, so if several persons have the same family name, enter the full name, or if you know it, the player&rsquos ID number. The introduction of large screen mobile phones and color screens has brought a resurgence of interest from consumers in WAP services. Wireless application protocol (WAP) is a protocol that has successfully established a de facto standard for the way in which wireless technology is used for Internet access. WAP technology has been optimized for information delivery to thin-client devices, such as mobile phones. And the Elista FIDE Office is at the cutting edge of technology to give you better service.
