IE on PocketPC will work much better on regular HTML websites (as long as it has no frames).

Of course, a WML page will work best on a WAP browser. Incidentally, some WAP pages are designed such that it can be converted to both WML and voice (using e.g. Nuance) more conveniently.

Textarea is really not something expected on WAP. It's impossible to display on a tiny cell phone screen. And it's hard to translate correctly a long voice message into text.

High speed wireless data access is still too expensive in general. It's like calling international long distance or worse. Ricochet was very good. Too bad it went out of business.

Update: Oh, Palm also uses its own invention to browse the Web. Kind of a hybrid between Palm database/application object and HTML, like a downloadable or downloaded webpage. I think it's best for data retrieval, not too way communication.
