<p>The idea of true ubiquitous mobile computing, including anywhere, anytime access to a subscriber's data, computing environment, and communications network, has captured the imagination of service providers, equipment vendors, and researchers, as well as the Internet-savvy public. Mobile computing is a confluence of communication technologies (particularly the Internet), computing devices and their components, and access technologies such as wireless. A mobile computing environment will include not only real-time mobility of devices, but also mobility of people across devices. Therefore, the environment includes a wide range of devices, applications, and networks.</p>
