The evolution in mobile messaging and mobile devices has made it possible to provide multimedia rich messaging capabilities to personal digital assistants (PDAs). The need for this arises simply because mobile service providers want to provide an enhanced messaging experience to the user. It also opens up new avenues for business, such as a shopping mall scenario. This chapter discusses the development of a multimedia messaging client for a PDA and a kiosk providing multimedia messages composition, search, share, and sending capabilities. This chapter also discusses the various messaging technologies, enabling wireless technologies, and the peer-to-peer model. The peer-to-peer technology used was Jxta, an XML-based and language agnostic peer-to-peer platform specification from Sun Microsystems. The peers (PDA client and the kiosk) were implemented using the application programming interfaces provided by the Personal Java reference implementation and the Jxta platform’s Personal Java port.
