Visual Radio information

Visual Radio information is intended to enhance traditional FM radio, by adding interactive content over the mobile phone network. Data can include images and text - supplying listeners with Visual Radio handsets with extra data including news, music, travel, sport and extras. We may expect the following:
  • Information on the song and artist currently playing on air
  • View images relating to presenters or news stories
  • See a weather map during the weather broadcast
  • Access news, weather and traffic alerts while songs are playing
  • Listen in to a talk show and see what has been discussed so far
  • Join in audience votes, Big Brother style
  • Participate in on-air competitions
Helge 2008: What has happened in three years time? Radio in a mobile phone isn't a big deal anymore. Sending images and video is yesterdays news. However, widespread use of the mobile phone as a working tool has escaped me. I'm still a laptop and computer man. I need an ergonomic keyboard and a large screen. The Steven Jobs proclaimed post-PC era hasn't become reality for me. The PC is my workhorse. The phone is still a phone only for me. But mobile broadband might end up being a very good way of adding more mobility to my working style.
