Abstract

This paper investigates emotional reaction of males to varying the aesthetic design of the BlackBerry Pearl; a leading wireless SmartPhone solution (BlackBerry Pearl; 2007). Further; the paper empirically evaluates male preferences for the BlackBerry Pearl in different colours and overlay patterns. For the purpose of this paper; the term emotion is operationalized to refer to users’ preferences based on instinct rather than intellect (i.e.; the observer loves or hates the design at first glance); and does not necessarily address the effect of design change on emotional state or mood (i.e.; the design makes the observer feel happy or sad).
