The recent technological advances in mobile communication and handheld devices transform the existing mobile phones to powerful computers with variety of functionalities and capabilities. This evolution has led to development of advanced applications such as maps and navigation, social networking, enhanced games, and many more which can be utilized by thesephones. However, these smartphoneshave several limitations such as, limited energy, memory and processing power. These constraints limit the ability of thesephones for performing complex tasks, or computationally intensive tasks at a constant level of performance for thesephonesto match the users’ desires. Therefore, in this paper we develop an intelligent middleware to enhance the capabilities of these handheld devices. This middleware allows the device to switch applications from executing locally to executing remotely.
