mmm.... and probably also reflections caused by objects closer than
the one to mesure (even within the phone itself). Even more since the
speaker is not directional. And it is difficult not to have other
objects in range ! (operator,....)
This problem is solved for the OLPC example, if there is 2 laptops.
(first sound received is ok for measurement, any other reflection
comes later).
