Until now the P2P network over mobile phones hasnpsilat been implemented and used extensively. In this paper, we used an empirical approach to gain system design insights in the robustness and scalability advantages offered by mobile P2P based systems, and harness the ubiquity property that mobile phones can provide. The ubiquity offered by mobile phones makes them an attractive platform for developing mission-critical applications in certain areas, such as healthcare. Mobile phones are expected to become more popular and advanced making them very feasible for handling complex functions and very available for many people to use. The research work reveals that the HTTP protocol based systems, such as P2P on mobile phones, can generate a lot of overhead which may significantly impacts mobile phones performance. We also look into the security aspects of P2P systems necessitating a thorough overhaul of traditional P2P concepts.
