iSeries on the mobile phone

Is it possible to use the iSeries on a mobile phone? If it is, where can I get more information?
Yes, the iSeries can "go mobile." IBM has a product called iSeries Access for Wireless. This product supports administration of OS/400 and application development for intended wireless devices such as personal digital assistants (PDA) and Internet-enabled phones.

iSeries Access for Wireless includes the following:

  • An OS/400 administrator interface called iSeries Navigator for Wireless, previously called Management Central-Pervasive, is enhanced and consolidated as part of iSeries Navigator.
  • The IBM Toolbox for Java 2 Micro Edition, which is part of IBM Toolbox for Java, is used by developers to rapidly develop Java applications that access iSeries data and resources. This micro edition extends its capabilities to wireless devices. It also includes the Java Database Connection (JDBC) driver to access DB2 UDB for iSeries.
