Abstract

Grid and Cloud computing are well known topics, and currently one of the focus of many research and commercial projects. Nevertheless, the transparent access to Grid facilities from mobile devices (like PDAs or smartphones) is normally out of the scope of those initiatives, taking into account the intrinsic limitations of such devices: screen size and resolution, storage capacity, computational power, etc.
