There is a natural synergy between mobile devices and cloud services: •Smart phone devices have reduced CPU processing capability, reduced storage capacity, and limited battery. Most smart phones contain a variety of sensors, such as accelerometer, GPS, gyroscope, and camera, that helps users navigate thru their space. •Cloud services have seemingly limitless compute, storage, and networking resources, can quickly scale out with demand, and have a steady power supply. Project Hawaii enables you to develop inventive cloud-enhanced Windows Phone applications.
