General Packet Radio Service, more commonly known as GPRS, is a new non-voice, value added, high-speed, packet-switching technology, for GSM (Global System for Mobile Communications) networks. It makes sending and receiving small bursts of data, such as email and web browsing, as well as large volumes of data over a mobile telephone network possible.GPRS offers faster data transmission via a GSM network within a range 9.6Kbits to 115Kbits.
This new technology makes it possible for users to make telephone calls and transmit data at the same time. (For example, if you have a mobile phone using GPRS, you will be able to simultaneously make calls and receive e-mail massages.)
With GPRS, you are able to access to E-mail and the Internet on the move via your pocket PC or portable PC.
