Motorola iRadio Set for December Launch

Motorola iRadio's core functionality sounds a like like podcasting in this GameShout mobile music article:

"iRadio...will allow mobile phones to download music and radio programmes and beam them to car stereos or home entertainment centres."

iRadio is set to launch in December, according to the article. However, no network operating company has yet to sign up, which will probably force Mototola to offer a good chunk of the monthly service fee to operators.

The article also points out that iRadio requires customers to own Bluetooth-enabled car stereos and home entertainment systems, but that current market penetration for such systems is low.

Motorola will need to form close relationships with Bluetooth device sellers to offer price incentives to customers...otherwise, the investment required for all the necessary equipment will prove too costly for non-early adopters.
