Multimedia on standalone and LAN based desktop computers is exploding. Multimedia markets are growing, applications are serving new areas, available processing power is increasing, network bandwidth is increasing, and technology developments are providing new capabilities. However, multimedia development in a wireless or mobile environment is not growing at the same rate at LAN based applications. Much attention has been placed on wireless device design including power management in an attempt to increase the wireless device's capability in step with a desktop device. However not much attention has been placed on the issue of bringing multimedia applications into the mobile operating environment. This paper examines some of the issues involved with bringing multimedia applications from the desktop to the mobile environment. The interaction with mobility management is explored in terms of multimedia messaging applications.
