This chapter describes some related research similar to that appearing in this book. Since much of previous study is dated and designed for general mobile devices rather than modern smartphones, the initial discussion centers on research for conserving mobile devices’ energy. Then, we survey techniques following three different approaches to offload the computations of mobile devices; that is, thin-client based approach, proxy based approach, and cloud based approach. For each approach, we compare it with our VMP approach and highlight the main differences.
