BitTorrent is an efficient peer-to-peer content sharing protocol. In this\npaper we investigate how this popular technology can be brought to mobile\nhandheld devices. As handheld devices are increasingly used for music and\nvideo consumption it is reasonable to consider how a handheld device can\njoin existing communities and be used to find, access, and play multimedia\ncontent. The paper is based on the experiences of BitTorrent implementation\non mainstream mobile phones (Nokia Series 40) over Java Micro Edition\nplatform. The paper analyses the important implementation issues of such\nlarge peer-to-peer application on low end mobile devices and shares\npractical experiences. The performance of the application is evaluated by\nspeed and memory usage measurements.
