Small screen devices, such as cellular phones or Personal Digital Assistants (PDAs), enjoy phenomenal popularity. PDAs can be used to complement traditional desktop computing systems to access personal multimedia information besides the use as typical organizers. However, due to the physical limitations accessing rich multimedia contents and diverse services using a single PDA is more difficult. Hence, the Situated Computing Framework (SCF) research project at Siemens Corporate Research (SCR)

A new distributed computing concept, the Small Screen/Composite Device (SS/CD) approach, is introduced, which offers new classes of ubiquitous and mobile multimedia services to small screen device users without to limit the diversity and the richness of the provided services.
