Nokia turns cellphones into webservers

According to Nokia has ported an Apache webserver to Symbian opening up the possibility of all phones become webservers in the future. Says the site “many mobile phones today have more processing power than early Internet servers.”

“Nokia’s Raccoon project believes mobile phone webservers could have large implications for the Internet. It says, “If every mobile phone or even every smartphone initially is equipped with a webserver, then very quickly most websites will reside on mobile phones.”

An Internet comprised largely of mobile phone-based servers could challenge search engines to keep pace, however, because of the “dynamism” of an Internet where site content can change from minute to minute.”
