The module has in built-in XML parser. Thus server based XML-applications can be accessed by the user using the application module. The application module with its 320x240 px color screen and its alphanumeric keyboard can be seen as an additional (beside an PC-browser) front-end to display and access web-content. It follows the very well-know client-server principle, where central internet content (Webserver) can be accessed by a PC-based browser. This makes it easy for web-developers to bring make their applications available for a telephone-display too. There are hardly no special skills needed to write XML-based phone applications for optiPoint application module. The only difference comes inherently with XML, which makes a better usage of the graphical capabilities of a telephone screen.
Like HTML is targeted for PC browsers and WML best for small mobile-phone displays, XML is optimal to represent web-content on phone displays.
