As time progresses, smart-phone features and wireless availability highlight the inner-mobile security issue. By detailed process of inner-mobile acquisition, analyzed result and reporting will be regarded as significant proof on the court. In this paper, researcher forensics implements system of Android smart-phone and delivers the acquisition data through cloud computing to get the forensic analysis and reporting. According to the forensic procedure of National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), forensics examiner acquires the inner-data when mobile turns on and then instantly sends it through the clouds. Results will be displayed immediately.
