In a community of mobile devices, resource pooling and resource sharing can be an effective means of improving the utilization and availability of the unique resources. This paper presents a peer to peer approach to device and resource discovery, resource pooling and resource management in mobile device communities. A peer to peer resource discovery and resource sharing algorithm that pools memory on mobile devices and presents it to the mobile device community as network memory is developed. The cost of uniform and nonuniform memory access in mobile device communities is explored and presented.
