FM on your Mobile?

from the umm-yeah-hang-on-I've-got-a-lot-of-voicemail dept

XSVoice has launched a new service that allows subcribers to listen to streaming audio programming via their mobiles phones. For $5.95 a month subscribers have access to over 100 content providers. Users browse a WAP menu, choose programming and when the click on their choice their phone dials the telephone number for the stream. Regular airtime charges apply to the call. This might be useful for news and sports, but I can’t imagine listening to music like this. Mobile phones still sound like mobile phones regardless of if it’s your girlfriend on the line or the new Britney Spears hit.
