How Smart Is Your Phone?

Thanks to the competition between Nokia, Apple and RIM, it's getting smarter and smarter.

Hopefully, it won't be too long until all cell phone music player manufacturers realize that the #1 extra consumers want is an FM radio built in too.

First one in will sell a bunch, I bet!

Jaye, why?

Adding an FM radio (why not an AM, too or satellite?) means that there has to be multiple models depending on which country they are trying to sell in to. The simple answer is that any station that streams on the Internet is on the iPhone, Nokia or anything else. Plus instead just a one-way broadcast, you can now add NTR plus interactive chat, requests, artist info and things we haven't even thought of yet!
