Abstract: We will describe bartering communication model that provides incentives for collaborations in pervasive environments by supporting P2P bartering for digital goods such as RingTones, MP3's and podcasts. We examine a set of bartering strategies and compare their performances. We examine costs that a node incurs while looking for the goods in homogeneous and heterogeneous environment.
