Motorola unveils new music radio service

Motorola has unveiled a new music radio service for cell phones. The service also plays over car and home stereos. Dubbed "Motorola iRadio", it features 435 channels and would be sold by wireless service providers to their subscribers for between $7 and $10 per month. This is just a little cheaper than the satellite radio networks, which might provide a similar service for phones. The service may also be adapted for non-Motorola phones if carriers request it, company officials said.

I dont see a need for this for use with cell phones, well, to get a few songs for your phone ring I do, but they would have to start making cell phones with longer lasting batteries for this to work. Considerations would be always needing a car charger, home charger, and ensure you use cell phone radio and leave battery life for calls you may ant. Also, prolonged use and charging frequently of a battery can surely guarentee shorter battery life.

Didn't the ipod phone idea self distruct? It just shows how retarded they are. Bring out better phones at a better price and i might give it a chance. We all know how expensive their phones are.

Nowadays that most new cellphones support mp3's and FM Radio, I dont see a point in such a service. And also non-motorola phones need a special adapter, so who needs it anyway?

I don't see the point. All i use a camero for is to take videos, call, text, and pictures. Thats about it. I do sometimes put music on it but they're ringtones. nmm much else to say really.
