Many regions of the world do not have access to the Internet due to lack of proper communication infrastructure. Delay Tolerant Network (DTN) provides communication in a challenging network condition such as high communication delay and intermittent connectivity. DTN is a promising solution to solve lack of connectivity problems in developing regions such as rural areas. DTN works in a store-and-forward approach, where the data is stored in a server and forwarded to a suitable carrier. The android phones can be made DTN capable to become a carrier for DTN bundles. Android phone is one of the front runners as the DTN carrier because of its portability and increasing popularity. In this paper, we have described theimplementation of DTN on Android phone and the performance measurements including DTN bandwidth and battery consumption.
