Mobile computing is becoming increasingly important due to the rise in the number of portable computers and the desire to have continuous network connectivity to the Internet irrespective of the physical location of the node. Mobile computing has fast become an important new paradigm in today's world of networked computing systems. Ranging from wireless laptops to cellular phones and WiFi/Bluetooth-enabled PDA's to wireless sensor networks, mobile computing has become ubiquitous in its impact on the people daily lives. The goal of this paper is to point out some of the limitations, constraints, mobility, challenges and applications of mobile computing.
