With the development in telecommunication technology, application on Wireless Application Protocol (WAP) has dramatically increased all over the world. Users can browse the Internet anytime, anywhere, by using small mobile devices. The number of Wireless Application Protocol (WAP) pages grew dramatically on the Internet. In just eight months, the number has grown from almost zero to 4.4 million WAP pages in 2000 [1].
