The purpose of this chapter is to present an overview of wireless mobile technology, its applications, with a focus on digital multimedia broadcasting (DMB) technology. The chapter also explores the research methodology regarding users’ perception on DMB cellular phones and presents empirical findings. Implications for future research are presented. The report attempts to provide stimulating answers by investigating the following questions: (1) Do users perceive easy access to DMB applications as a satisfactory service offered by DMB service providers? (2) Do users perceive high-quality DMB program content as a satisfactory service offered by the DMB service providers? (3) Are there differences between different age groups in terms of their perception of DMB phone prices, phone usage time, program content, and services?
