What are karaoke on mobile phones?
Several companies offer a karaoke service on mobile phones, using a Java MIDlet that runs with a text file containing the words and a MIDI file with the music. You can play a song over your phone’s speakerphone and sing along. Better yet, you can record your own voice singing the tune, overlay the recording over the music and send the whole thing to your friends.
A lot of new mobile applications that have started popping up allow people to interact with music stored on their cell phones. Some others let users create their own ringtones. Others allow you to create musical voicemail greetings. Researchers have also developed karaoke games for cell phones in order to boost music database training.
Karaoke is now available for the iPhone, such as Karaoke Anywhere, and other playback devices at many internet storefronts.
