Traditionally, mobile devices are smaller, and data transfer rates are much lower. However, mobile and wireless networks are becoming faster in terms of transfer rates, while mobile devices are becoming smaller, more compact, less power consuming, and, most importantly, user-friendly. As more new applications and services become available every day, the number of mobile device owners and users is increasing exponentially. Furthermore, content is targeted to user needs and preferences by making use of personal and location data. The user profile and location information is becoming increasingly a necessity.
