Wireless WebDrive from StoragePoint.com
Access your files from anywhere

Your cell phone just learned a new trick, thanks to StoragePoint.com.
StoragePoint.com's WebDrive for WAP Phones brings their web-based, file storage and sharing service to any wireless phone capable of browsing the Internet via the Wireless Application Protocol (WAP).
Instead of Call Forwarding, how about File Forwarding?
With this service, a business road warrior can browse her online, virtual WebDrive of files and instantly e-mail selected files to her clients or colleagues.
You may already be carrying a WebDrive "remote-control" in your pocket, since there are already over a million WAP-enabled phones in circulation. The service is compatible with phones from Motorola, Qualcomm, Sanyo, NeoPoint, and Samsung and is accessible through Sprint PCS or ATT PocketNet networks.
Could this be the next killer app for wireless phones? Possibly. Even President Clinton said "Wow! You can do that?" when he saw a Wireless WebDrive demo at Spring Comdex on Tuesday.
So, next time you are on the road and asked for that winning presentation, say "No problem, I'll WAP it to you."
