What is a WBMP file?

A .WBMP file is a Wireless Bitmap Image file.

These files store bitmap images that have been saved in black and white. In the WBMP file format, monochrome images stored as 1-bit pixels. Therefore, pixels saved as a binary 1 represent white, and pixels saved as binary 0 represent black. Users can then send these images using wireless SMS messaging devices.

WBMP images are used by various mobile devices and were popular before standard mobile devices could handle and transmit full-color pictures and video media.
