The intense use of hardware resources by mobile applications has a significant impact on the battery life of mobile devices. In this paper we introduce a novel approach for the efficient use of mobile phone resources, by considering the coordinated sharing of resources offered by multiple co-located devices. Taking into account the social behaviour of users, there are frequent situations where similar resources are available by co-located mobile phones. In this work we discuss the feasibility of sharing such resources in an opportunistic way, the possible benefits and the research challenges that need to be addressed in order to implement a reliable and robust solution.
