judgecorp writes: "VascoDe can offer web applications such as Twitter, Facebook, Skype and more on low end phones that don't even have 3G capability, without even using SMS messages. The service, which is available through operators in South Africa and Indiia, uses the USSD protocol, part of the GSM network used for operators' messages, and hosts text-based interfaces to popular web applications no servers on the operators' network. VascoDe has an impressive video showing the approach actually works, and is planning to use it to bring richer servicse to the world's 5.4 billion feature phones."
