Researchers aims to enable users to access all their home devices and to manage them all from mobile devices, or enable users to do all their life activates through mobile devices. Mobile users could check where is the car is parked now or even access and manage it. Client can order car from limousine service provider and most companies now enable their clients to check where the car is and know how far it is. This may sound like science-fiction right in the past, but most of this technology is available now in several parts of the world.
This evolution of handheld devices combined with new high-speed wireless data networks made browsing the mobile Internet a more compelling experience. This phenomenon is like the transition of the Internet when broadband access became widely attainable. The mobile Web is turning a corner and becoming useful to most users. In this article a survey of the literature concerning the Mobile Web and the cloud computing technologies is presented. The main concern is to provide the foundations for merging the two technologies in a mobile cloud computing model .
The mobile Web is simply accessing the World Wide Web (WWW) from mobile devices ranging from cellular phones to iPod touch. Such access does not require a desktop computer or a fixed landline connection. It constitutes the entirety of the Internet and is not limited to websites which have been specifically designed for mobile viewing. Handsets and mobile phones which have Web capabilities can search and browse the Internet from any place with a cellular signal available. Websites which are made especially for the small screen appear as scaled-back versions of their desktop counterparts, often with a numbered menu system for quick access to content. Web destinations which do not have mobile versions appear as if they were squeezed onto the tiny screen, and oftentimes have overlapping menus and links.
A study shows that by the end of 2013, the number of mobile connected devices will exceed the number of people on earth, and by 2017 there will be nearly 1.4 mobile devices per capita. There will be over 10 billion mobile-connected devices in 2017, including machine-to-machine (M2M) modules-exceeding the world’s population at that time (7.6 billion). Global mobile data traffic grew 70 percent in 2012. Global mobile data traffic reached 885 petabytes per month at the end of 2012, up from 520 petabytes per month at the end of 2011.
Mobile Web access today still suffers from interoperability and usability problems. This is partly due to the incompatibility of the format of much of the information available on the Internet with mobile devices, and partly due to the small processing power of the hard ware of mobile devices. The fact that most of the Internet video applications can be categorized as cloud applications, the mobile cloud traffic follows a curve similar to that of video applications. Mobile devices have memory and speed limitations that might prevent them from acting as media consumption devices, which can be substituted for cloud applications and services . For example, cloud applications and services such as Netflix, YouTube , Pandora, and Spotify allow mobile users to overcome the memory capacity and processing power limitations of mobile devices. Globally, cloud applications will account for 84 percent of total mobile data traffic in 2017, compared to 74 percent at the end of 2012.
Another key finding from the data is the type of application generating these data consumption trends. For smart phones and tablets globally, the top three application types are the same for both device types, although they differ in percentage rates. Video streaming and communications applications such as YouTube , Hulu, and Netflix rank highest on both device platforms, although data consumption is slightly higher on tablets. Information applications rank second on tablets (Google Maps, PulseNews, and Wall Street Journal). Social networking (Facebook and Twitter) ranks higher on smart phone, perhaps because the increased mobility of smart phones that allows users to instantly connect socially.
