We'll need to send (push) around 20000 messages per day (100 bytes each) from 
an erlang based system to J2ME devices.  Messages must be acknowledged and 
responded back from the handsets, thus communication occurs in both 
directions.  We also need to be able to broadcast a message to a group of 

We'll be developing the J2ME clients too.

We are planning to use GPRS for communications, since SMS would be too 

Which MOM shall we use? A priori we don't have any restrictions... but the
