Mobile cloud computing as future for mobile applications - Implementation methods and challenging issues
In recent years cloud computing has gained a momentum and is transforming the internet computing infrastructure. Also the mobile applications and mobile devices are developing rapidly. Cloud computing is anticipated to bring an innovation in mobile computing, where the mobile devices can use clouds for data processing, storage and other intensive operations. Already there are some mobile cloud applications for example Google's Map, Gmail for iPhone and Cisco's WebEx on iPad, however these applications are using the Software as a Service model. In this paper we introduce state-of-the-art Mobile Cloud Computing and its implementation methods. We also investigate some critical issues to be solved and point-out further future research directions.
