Cell phones as web servers? Hmm…that is something that could really change the face of the web in ways we can’t even imagine. Several billion volatile web sites flooding the Net would certainly add a new dimension to the game of search and seek.
Nokia has ported the Apache webserver to Symbian, in order to enable mobile phones to serve content on the World Wide Web. Many mobile phones today have more processing power than early Internet servers, suggesting that “there really is no reason anymore why webservers could not reside on mobile phones,” according to the company. The technique could theoretically also work on Linux mobile phones.
