In the recent years, cloud computing has cultivated the outsourcing of computing resources like IT infrastructures, service platforms, and software. With the emergence of ultra-fast 4G mobile networks and highly-featured smartphones and tablets, the prerequisites are now met for bringing cloud computing to the mobile domain. While first commercial products are restricted to the sharing of files, contacts, and calendars among different devices, more sophisticated applications still have to be developed. Future applications of mobile cloud computing will have an impact on almost all activities of our social and business life, and include, but are not limited to, mobile marketing, social networks, smart cities, health care, and business processes.
