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