Mobile devices (e.g., smartphone, tablet etc.) are increasingly becoming an essential part of human life as the most effective and convenient communication tools not bounded by time and place. With a rapid growth of the mobile applications and development of cloud computing concept, Mobile Cloud Computing (MCC) has been introduced to be a potential technology for mobile services. MCC integrates the cloud computing into the mobile environment and overcomes obstacles related to the performance, security etc. discussed in mobile computing. In this paper, the authors give an overview of the MCC including the definition, architecture, and applications. The issues, existing solutions and approaches are presented.
