Fragility of mobile devices: With the ongoing rapid development of wireless communication and internet connectivity, most modern communication devices come fitted with digital images, portable cameras and other related features. This helps users view images at high definition and also share them through instant cloud computing platforms.Today, it’s possible to make unique applications using watermarking software. This unique cloud application helps in image authentication as well as tamper localization. However, there are various demerits that mobile devices have when it comes to cloud computing. First, some of them have limited memory capacity and cannot open big files, moreover since they are portable there’s always the risk of loss due to misplacement or theft.

Increase in the Worker Mobility: Statistics show that three-quarters of all modern employees use handsets to increase their productivity.

Fragmentation of Devices: Mobile phone fragmentation occurs when some subscribers are using an old OS edition, while others are running their devices on new and updated versions. This phenomenal can be worsened if the main wireless carrier is charged with deciding the deployment of OS updates, it would be better if the phone’s manufacturer does this for efficiency. Fragmentation may be a setback for professional software developers, most of who need to create different editions of an app to keep up with technological advancements and competition from other programmers. Device fragmentation can also be a hindrance for IT experts, most of who need to manage and safeguard their OS’s from intrusion by hackers. Different software editions have unique capacities, therefore making it hard to stem illegal updates from unknown sources. Nevertheless, this problem is more common in Android devices and not those that run on iOS.

HTML5: The HTML5 technology comprises of JavaScript APIs and CSS3 applications. CSS stands for Cascading Structural Sheets such as footers, headers and unique document figures. They help mobile phone subscribers to access unique content and layouts from their devices. HTML5 is important in mobile cloud computing since it helps in making adjustments on factors like screen orientation, screen size and image resolution.
