Due to the advancement of hardware technologies and mobile communication systems, the mobile devices are transforming into multimedia devices capable of consuming multimedia data. The mobile multimedia devices having the 3G/4G mobile communication interfaces have created the ubiquitous multimedia applications paradigm. The ubiquitous multimedia advocates that adaptable media contents should be available to users any time and any where. These ubiquitous multimedia applications have promising business potentials. The ubiquitous multimedia applications create an infrastructure for multimedia information management, where contents can be managed with interconnection and collaboration between users. The Personalized Ubiquitous Multimedia (PUM) is a subset of ubiquitous multimedia applications, where users can create, store, share and re-use the personalized heterogeneous media contents using mobile multimedia devices. Hence, PUM is an example of interconnected and collaborative multimedia content management system. This chapter illustrates the evolution of Computer-Phone and the concept of PUM. An integrated architecture is described aiming to deploy the PUM applications. The integrated architecture is composed of Mobile Agent Systems (MAS) and a specialized Mobile Distributed File System. A set of advantages of the integrated architecture is described.
