Last Saturday she gave the first simultaneous chess match using mobile phones. The software used is called <a href="http://www.w-chess.com/engels/indexgb.html">"Wireless Chess"</a> which provides an interactive chess service on mobile phones. Alexandra's opponents could be located anywhere and if you follow the link you will see, among other things, a chess board set up outside in a city square. Don't miss Alexandra's own <a href="http://www.kosteniuk.com/index.shtml">web site</a> and her <a href="http://www.kosteniuk.com/cgi/sphotos/eight.cgi?gal=3&opt=idx">glamour shots</a>! A Smartphone version, anyone?<br /><br /><img src="http://www.smartphonethoughts.com/images/kosteniuk07.jpg" alt="User submitted image" title="User submitted image"/>
