The ubiquitous mobile phone could soon become a mini server, right in your pocket, doing a host of things that you never would have imagined possible. Webtide have just unveiled the i-Jetty, a new open source java jetty app which could just make the mobile phone a web server courtesy a port of the open source jetty app. This could make your mobile phone function like a standalone webserver or even sync with a number of similar mobile phone web servers to become a part of a small network. Preliminary tests have shown the i-Jetty ports very fast to the Android phone.
Now, if you are wondering what’s this is all about? Google’s Android phones are those being currently developed by Google and are all set to have an open source operating system. This obviously can do an enormous lot to improve cell phone performance and be tailor made to suit specific needs of users. What is even more exciting is the fact that all this can be done by the users themselves, thus fostering great innovation and creativity. When the Android phones combine with the open source Java applets like the i-Jetty, they can become mini servers and can be accessed remotely by other Android users.
With the next-gen mobile phones all set to become as powerful as laptops, this makes mobile websites a very distinct reality as the only thing really stopping them are the crippling processing power of mobile devices. Android phones, open source operating systems, mobile websites and of course mobile commerce are at the cusp of being the next big thing in the mobile technology space. And as fittingly, Google Exececutive Rich Mioner has already claimed that Android phones will outsell iPhones. The future looks very, very exciting.
