FreeNews on my Sanyo 9000

Looks nice and very fast on EVDO. It is a Java app downloaded via WAP. The developer must be using UAProf as it correctly detected my phone as a Sanyo SCP9000.

All fine and dandy if you get free data. Having to pay Telecom WAP charges might put a dent in your wallet! :-)

Looks good, only one possible drawback... Does it get charged at WAP rates?

Yes and yes to the WAP charges, but it is a very nice application which is what the blog was about. The WAP charges will be addressed and will not stay at $51K for 1GB forever!

Yes I agree it looks like a very nice app. Good to hear that WAP charges will be fixed! Then i'll be able to use cools apps like this.
