The average mobile phone and tablet that is now available has more computing power than even a year ago. In particular, the inclusion of Wi-fi capability enables such devices to be used as part of a Wi-fi-based information sharing network without needing to modify the existing mobile telephone infrastructure. In addition to this, the ability to create decentralized wireless ad hoc networks means that there is no reliance upon any form of network infrastructure, such as switches, routers, access points and servers.
