Smart mobile devices are fast becoming the epicentre of people's lives. Most smart phones are currently embedded with powerful and programmable sensors such as GPS, gyroscope, microphone, camera, accelerometer etc. These sensor-enabled smart-phones would form an important element of the future networked-infrastructure. A new wave of services is bound to erupt from such connected infrastructure and smart devices that will influence all aspects of our social ecosystem. In the context of Smart Cities, this position paper and the associated invited talk presents the Mobile Technology perspective of the Smart-city architecture by presenting a conceptualized framework and highlights the open and emerging research challenges in this landscape.
