Mobile billing market sparks EDS, Nokia deal

EDS has announced a local agreement with Nokia Networks to provide mobile billing solutions for general packet radio services (GPRS) and third-generation wireless (3G) services.

GPRS is currently available in Australia and 3G is expected to be delivered by the end of next year.

EDS will work with Nokia in its laboratory environment to identify and develop billing opportunities and solutions across a variety of platforms.

EDS said integrated billing systems will unlock the potential for 3G value-added services.
