Motorola reveals details about iRadio service

Motorola Inc. has revealed some details about its plans for iRadio subscription music service that is expected to be launched later this year. The first handset to feature iRadio service is the much speculated Rokr E2 which, unlike the first Rokr phone, will not include the iTunes music software. As Motorola announced in October 2005 the first cell phone for iRadio would be able to hold about 70 hours of music. The iRadio service will include 435 commercial-free radio channels. It will allow subscribers not only to receive updates over-the-air, but also to download channels to their computer and transfer them to play on their phones or car and home stereos. Although service provider partnerships were not mentioned, it is known that Motorola plans to sell the service and phone via mobile operators for the expected price of about $7 a month. iRadio subscription music service will be officially introduced at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas this week.
