    6. 7. 1 + 1 = 2 Mobile Web + Cloud Computing = Mobile Cloud Computing
    7. 8. i mobile web
    8. 9. Mobile phones are not the same as desktop computers
    9. 11. <ul><li>The complexity of the mobile world </li></ul><ul><li>Multiple Operating Systems </li></ul><ul><li>Multiple browsers </li></ul><ul><li>Multiple devices etc </li></ul>
    10. 12. <ul><li>Four major problems of the mobile web: </li></ul><ul><li>Limited memory and storage </li></ul><ul><li>Small display screens </li></ul><ul><li>Flaky browsers </li></ul><ul><li>Flaky connections </li></ul>
    11. 13. <ul><li>1. Limited memory and storage </li></ul><ul><li>Processing power </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Various data formats </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Depends on the device </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Data storage </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Storage is expensive </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Interoperability issues </li></ul></ul></ul>
    12. 14. <ul><li>2. Small display screens </li></ul><ul><li>Desktop version websites are optimized for 1024 x 768 pixels. </li></ul><ul><li>There’s no way that will fit on a mobile browser. </li></ul>
    13. 15. <ul><li>Small display screens </li></ul><ul><li>Solution lies in the realms of graphic and interaction design. </li></ul><ul><li>Technical solutions exist using CSS and Javascript. </li></ul>
