"PORTAL, WEB PORTAL, ENTRY PORTAL
portail

Adresse sous forme d'URL à partir de laquelle un internaute fait apparaître la page d'accueil d'un site web dès sa connexion à Internet où sont offerts des services et des contenus. " (from http://www.can.ibm.com/francais/dico/dictionnaire.cgi?P)

The sites below explain what mobile portals are all about. From what I understand, they are portals that can be used with portable equipment (laptops used with cellphones, etc.)
