During the last half decade the popularity of different peer-to-peer applications has grown tremendously. Traditionally only desktop-class computers with fixed line network connections have been powerful enough to utilize peer-to-peer. However, the situation is about to change. The rapid development of wireless terminals will soon enable peer-to-peer applications on these devices as well as on desktops. Possibilities are further enhanced by the upcoming high-bandwidth cellular networks. In this thesis the applicability and implementation alternatives of an existing peer-to-peer system are researched for two target platforms: Linux powered iPaq and Symbian OS based smartphone. The result is a peer-to-peer middleware component suitable for mobile terminals. It works on both platforms and utilizes Bluetooth networking technology. The implemented software platforms are compatible with each other and support for additional network technologies can be added with a minimal effort.
