In this paper, using data from a set of exploratory interviews, we inductively develop an integrative framework identifying key enablers and inhibitors that influence the process of use and adoption of hybrid wireless devices by subjects who participated in three-week long trial studies. A number of intended as well as unintended consequences of the use and adoption of the technology also emerged. The primary contribution of this paper is that it sensitizes the reader to the complex nature of the use and adoption process that is influenced by and influences a variety of factors, and provides a map for future researchers to identify, isolate, and study "variables" and relationships among the variables based on their theoretical interest and methodological orientations.
