Mobile Cloud Computing Subscribers to Total Nearly One Billion by 2014, According to ABI Research
[Retrieved September 09, 2009]

"This is a news article from ´┐ŻABI Research which forecasts that the number of mobile cloud computing subscribers worldwide will grow rapidly over the next five years, rising from 42.8 million subscribers in 2008, (approximately 1.1% of all mobile subscribers) to just over 998 million in 2014 (nearly 19%)."

A Network Architecture for Heterogeneous Mobile Computing

"This paper summarizes the results of the BARWAN project at the University of California at Berkeley, which focused on enabling truly useful mobile networking across an extremely wide variety of real-world networks and mobile devices. It presents the overall architecture, summarize the key results, and discuss four broad lessons learned along the way."

Pervasive Adaptation for Mobile Computing

This paper was written by Tim Edmonds, of the Laboratory for Communications Engineering, Department of Engineering, University of Cambridge, Steve Hodges and Andy Hopper, AT&T Laboratories Cambridge. "It details a framework for developing and deploying mobile applications. The authors aim to provide automatic adaptation to suitably constructed mobile applications. The adaptation mechanism is pervasive through application and system layers providing tight integration of adaptation both vertically (through an application) and horizontally (between applications)."

Secure Mobile Computing via Public Terminals

Written by Richard Sharp, James Scott of Intel Research and Alastair R. Beresford of University of Cambridge Computer Laboratory, "this article presents a system that enable users to access their applications and data securely using a combination of public terminals and a more trusted, personal device."

[Retrieved September 08, 2009]

"This is the homepage of ACM SIGMOBILE which was conceived in early 1995. It started as an organization that fosters research in the field of mobility and tetherless ubiquitous connectivity. Their interests range from building commercially viable handheld devices with powerful communications and computing ability, to lightweight wearables that are part of a soldier's battle gear, connecting him to the rest of his platoon or division. We are interested in providing computing and Internet access in automobiles, trains, ships, planes, and spacecraft. We build satellites that connect to each other and to the Internet."

Tiny 'MEMS' Devices to Filter, Amplify Electronic Signals
[Retrieved September 08, 2009]

This is an article from Science Daily which explains that "researchers are developing a new class of tiny mechanical devices containing vibrating, hair-thin structures that could be used to filter electronic signals in cell phones and for other more exotic applications."

Wherever we may roam
[Retrieved September 09, 2009]

An article conveying that the era of mobility computing is now upon us, and the world of business is changing. It explains how the impact of smart mobile technology on customer service affects customer relations, mobile software industry, location based services and migration of media content onto digital platforms."

Who Are You? Mobile ID Devices Find Out Using NIST Guidelines
[Retrieved September 08, 2009]

This article discusses "a new publication that recommends best practices for the next generation of portable biometric acquisition devices-Mobile ID-has been published by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)."

Wiring the World Wirelessly
[Retrieved September 08, 2009]

This is an article about "the rapid expansion of the use of the mobile phone which raises hopes that the digital divide might be bridged sooner rather than later, according to a study published in the International Journal of Electronic Security and Digital Forensics."
