Chapter 17. Your Pocket Is Alive with the Sound of Music

In This Chapter

  • Checking into music on your Nexus One

  • Listening to a song

  • Entertaining with the Nexus One

  • Organizing your tunes into playlists

  • Making a new playlist

  • Managing your music

  • Moving music from your computer into the phone

  • Purchasing music using the Nexus One

You need not sit around bored and melancholy between phone calls. Rather than mind the tedium playing silly games or taking pictures of your hallux, you can listen to music. Yes, one of the innumerable Nexus One features is that it's also a portable music player, similar to that extremely popular device made by a fruit company, a gizmo that rhymes with "sky rod." Though cellphones that double as music players aren't as popular as the Sky Rod, they're equally capable and just as enjoyable.

Your Pocket Is Alive with the Sound of Music

Now Hear This!

The Nexus One is ready to entertain you with music whenever you want to hear it. Simply plug in the headphones, summon the Music app, and choose the tunes to match your mood. It's truly blissful — well, until someone calls you and the Nexus One ceases being a musical instrument and returns to being the ball-and-chain of the modern digital era.
