Executive Summary

This paper discusses challenges of implementing RMI over mobile phone platforms. Improving Distributed Computing capabilities in mobile phones has three emerging challenges: first, mobile devices have a limited processing power and storage, second, mobile devices have a limited electrical power, and third, there is a limited networking capability.
