In this paper review the notion of the use of mobile device in grid computing environment, We describe our experience in evaluating the GridLab mobile service as a tool which supports the combination of two mainstreams, grid computing and mobile devices. We use GridLab Mobile services platform to conduct our experiment to enable the access of grid computing power from Poznan supercomputing and networking center in Poland through smart phones. In order to deploy GridLab Mobile services we need to have mobile client, mobile command center and grid application. GridLab mobile services functionality are GridLab resource management system (GRMS) job submission and control, message box browsing, visualization viewing, and auxiliary functionality such as login. From our experiment it was found that to perform Login to the services through smart phone, we need to send the average of 635 Bytes of data and received 467,6 of data in 14,6 seconds. For getting message box we need to send the average of 1389 Bytes of data and received 1638,8 Bytes of data in 26,6 Seconds. In addition to that, for visualization purposes we needed to send the average of 2701,8 Bytes of data and received the average of 46139,4 of data in 26,6 Seconds.
