Motorola iRadio Named Best Radio Service -- Again

For a second, I thought I was experiencing Deja Vu -- but nope.  Motorola iRadio was named the Best Radio Service at the 2006 Billboard Digital Entertainment, Media + Marketing Excellence Awards (DEMMX) ceremony.  iRadio beat out SIRIUS Satellite Radio and Yahoo!® Music.

iRadio won the same award last year at the same event, beating out AOL, Yahoo, LAUNCHcast,  and XM Satellite Radio. Worth noting, iRadio was also named the Best Mobile Music Service at the 2006 Digital Music Conference in November.  VCast must be kicking itself, HARD.  Not too shabby for a product that has yet to launch nationally.  ...Hey, how did Mike Gaumond get to be on those judge panels?  :)

And hey, Sandra Bernhart performed -- here are a couple pics, thanks to an anonymous attendee:

Motorola iRadio Named Best Radio Service Over AOL, XM, and Yahoo

Motorola-iRadio-Named-Best-Radio-Service.jpgWow. A double-whammy for Motorola iRadio, coming in #1 at both the DEMXPO 2005 and GadgetFest 2005 today.

iRadio was named the Best Radio Service at the Digital Entertainment and Media Excellence Awards, beating nominees AOL Radio Network, Yahoo! Music’s LAUNCHcast Radio Service, and XM Satellite Radio. These are heavy hitters, with an interesting, distinguishing feature in common...they're actually available in stores! This is quite huge. It's late, so I'm going to leave it at that...for now.

Elsewhere, Motorola won the GadgetFest 2005 Best Cell Phone award. MOTO seems to be playing a lot of its cards right, now with a few more "accolades" under its belt to show off.

Congrats to the iRadio team!

UPDATE: Here's Motorola's press release about the award.

Motorola iRadio was nominated for two Digital Entertainment & Media Excellence Awards in the Music category, yesterday. Not too shabby for a service that hasn't hit store shelves yet!

Motorola is up against some serious heavy-hitters that generated a lot of buzz this year. Will iRadio's 2006 launch date hamper Motorola's chances? You can witness the drama for only $175 per Awards Dinner ticket!
