Maybe all you need to connect millions of mobile devices to the Internet is some snazzy middleware from IBM.

Darryl Taft at eWeek reports:

IBM Research is working on delivering a middleware system that will enable users to tap into the data on mobile devices to create a virtually unlimited pool of data and provide essentially infinite access to the Internet, the company said. ... IBM Research has developed a prototype of a data-sharing middleware platform for mobile devices that will enable heterogeneous devices, regardless of their operating systems or hardware, to access the network via various communication modes, including device-to-device direct communications.

The code name: Infinity.

The project sounds interesting. Maybe IBM can make middleware cool--Big Blue certainly has been trying for awhile.
