Smartphones are cell phones with more advanced capabilities than ordinary cell phones. They have usually more processing power and larger screens than normal phones. A Web service is a way to call a procedure on a remote computer system with web-related standards like SOAP and HTTP. When one combined smartphones and Web services i.e. to run a Web service on a mobile device one can greatly increase the functionality of mobile devices to interact with its environment. This makes a wide range of new functionality possible. Especially in the field of ubiquitous computing. The main goal of my research was to show that it is possible to run services on mobile devices. However the performance characteristics are important to ensure the mobile device is able to handle multiple requests while the device is able to function normally. In my bachelor project I study the performance characteristics of Web services running on the various mobile phone platforms and I compare the figures of the emulators with a real device.
