Abstract and Keywords
This chapter analyzes the sound quality and music capabilities of mobile devices. It provides a summary of reviews of mobile phones from carriers in the United States and cites the result of a study that reveals user preferences for the availability of Advanced Audio Distribution Profile (A2DP) technology, radio applications, and music players in mobile phones. It also discusses how users are creating an ever-increasing number of meanings about their mobile phones and what these devices should be able to do, and it suggests that these meanings and demands are part of goal-directed behavior.
