ABSTRACT
The Cloudberry project has built a novel HTML5-based cloud phone—a mobile device in which all the device's user functionality is downloaded and cached dynamically from the Web, including all the applications and even the entire top-level user interface. One of the most central benefits of a cloud phone is that nearly any of its customer-facing features can be changed on millions of devices all over the world almost instantly. This will shorten application and service deployment and update life cycles significantly. From the user's perspective, the key benefit is multiple device ownership: the ability to access the same applications and data effortlessly from different devices without tedious installation, data copying, or synchronization hassles.
