Abstract

A smart phone can work as a Web server. Phone owners can access/update the content of their phones with a standard Web browser, and join a P2P system as a client or server. Thus, they can share resources with other people. New applications can be developed using the new concept, and corporations can improve their processes. Examples are provided in this paper. Software developers should also pay attention to this new direction in communications. Programs written for mobile phones are difficult to develop as there are so many different operating systems. New applications can be written to run under the Web server and do not need to interact directly with operating systems, which will make it easier to port application programs to different phone models. Thus, applications can be developed more quickly and later deploy different hardware and software platforms. In addition, development costs can be reduced.
