I may be wrong, but my understanding is that software developers are not exactly storming the barricades to write to the WAP spec. So Nokia is trying to seed the market by investing some of their own resources into creating software that will run on their platforms.

ERICY pursuing the same goal, although not necessarily the same strategy (see, for example, recent ERICY news release, "Ericsson makes WAP client widely available under favorable conditions" -- I'll post this release on this board).

So the platform vendors are putting their own money on the line, by investing in WAP-compliant software.
