Today, users are enjoying a plethora of new
advanced applications on their smart
mobile devices, thanks to advances in the
technology of mobile networks and devices.
However, such advancements do not come
for free: the energy consumption of mobile
devices is rapidly increasing due to power
hungry features, such as larger high-definition
displays and more interactive applications.
Unless a proactive stance is taken,
the increase in energy consumption of
mobile devices will continue, rapidly depleting
the battery; hence confining mobile
users to locations near power outlets; taking
away the freedom of roaming promised by
mobile networking.
