Mobile devices are increasingly becoming the main mean of interaction for inhabitants of ubiquitous computing environments. Pervasiveness of these devices as users’ personal gadgets and their high-tech capabilities allow capturing of broad contextual information about the physical environment, users social profile and preferences. These modern roles of mobile devices facilitate a number of user and environment related context consuming and producing applications to be hosted on these devices. But without a coordinating component on the mobile device these context consumers and providers are a potential burden on device resources, specifically the effect of uncoordinated computation and communication shortens the battery life. In this paper we briefly de- scribe the concept of a Mobile Context Broker and focus on the energy conservation benefits gained through the context coordination facilities provided by the Mobile Context Broker executing on a smart mobile device. The reported results signify reduction in energy consumption.
