Internet Radio in the Dashboard: Motorola Plans Service
Publish date:

Motorola is testing iRadio, which it calls a podcast-like technology that allows Internet radio to play through cell phones to car music systems, according to the Chicago Tribune in a report carried by UPI. The monthly service would cost $5 to $7 per month.
iRadio is being tested in L.A. and Washington and could be available nationally by the end of the year, the newspaper reports. Subscribers could select six downloads from a menu of channels available on the Internet. The phone and the car radio have to be Bluetooth-enabled so the system also may involve a $50-$70 adapter.
