WAP Deck Sizes

There's been some discussion on the wmlprogramming list about the maximum deck sizes the various microbrowsers can support. The bad news is that the desk has to fit into a single transmission packet and that some of this will be used for addressing information. The good news is that the gateways will compress the deck before sending it to the phone. The current deck sizes work out to be:

  • Ericsson R320 - 3kB
  • Ericsson R380 - 3.5kB
  • Nokia 7110 - 1.5kB
  • UP.browser - 1.4kB
So, allowing for the overheads your wml pages shouldn't be more than 1.3kB after compression, say 1.5kB before compression.
