The Wholesale Applications Community (WAC) is an open, global alliance of the world’s leading telecommunications operators and device manufacturers including AT&T, China Mobile, France Telecom, Huawei, LG Electronics, Samsung, Telefonica, Verizon and Vodafone. With a common goal of uniting a fragmented applications marketplace, WAC aims to create an open industry platform that simplifies service creation by allowing developers to deploy an application across multiple devices (through the use of standard technologies) and across multiple operators. By enabling developers to write an application which can execute on a web runtime upon multiple mobile device platforms, the alliance hopes to increase consumer choice by enabling portability of applications across devices, operating systems and network operators.
A demonstration of the support for WAC 1.0 and 1.1 Widgets will be available at the SurfKitchen Mobile World Congress stand – The Avenue #19
