Abstract

The convergence of two technological developments has made mobile computing a reality. In the last few years, developed countries spent large amounts of money to install and deploy wireless communication facilities. Originally aimed at telephone services (which still account for the majority of usage), the same infrastructure is increasingly used to transfer data. In parallel, wireless LAN technologies are providing hotspot coverage in many high-traffic locations. The second development is the continuing reduction in size of computer hardware, leading to portable computation devices such as laptops, palmtops, or functionally enhanced cell phones. Given current technology, a user can run a set of applications on a portable device and communicate over a variety of communication links, depending on his/her current location.
