The days when you had to huddle round the wireless in your living room to listen to radio broadcasts are long gone and you can now listen to a multitude of stations almost anywhere. spodtronic brings streaming radio to Series 60 phones, giving you access to podcasts from stations around the world. In addition to simply allowing you to play music, the service sparkles visually too, offering information such as lyrics and sleeve artwork on your display.
In order to receive spodtronic webradio your phone must use UMTS, or EGDE-GPRS connectivity. The program clearly displays all the current broadcasts that are available for transmission, and you can browse by album cover as well as searching for news-related podcasts. The only downside of the program is that it could incur high charges from your mobile operator as a result of the sheer amount of audio and graphical data that is transmitted, so it's worth keeping tabs on the bandwidth you're using.
However, if you have a flat-rate phone contract, spodtronic delivers a polished interface to help you embrace the very latest in radio technology.
