Abstract: The increasing processing power and capabilities of mobile phones enable them to become the next generation of computing platform. Mobile devices provide ubiquitous, inexpensive and powerful computing resources that people could use wherever they are. The increasing availability of web services and grid computing has made easier the access and reuse of different kinds of services. Web services provide network accessible interfaces to application functionality, while grid computing enables the efficient distribution of computing resources and power. In the future, higher functioning smart homes will need these capabilities. As a step in bringing grid computing to smaller devices, this paper presents a framework that enables the use of small mobile devices to conduct computing resource management in a distributed environment. The mobile devices access stateful web services on a Globus-based grid environment. To illustrate the presented framework, a phone-based user-friendly application has been created that uses the framework libraries to demonstrate the various functionalities that are accessible from any Nokia S60 phone.
