Adds One-Touch Presets for More Than 80 channels from Top-Rated Music, News and Talk Broadcasters

Doubles the Number of Onscreen Channels Displayed

Users of smartphones and wireless handheld PDAs now have even more choice and control of their mobile audio experience with the latest version of SelectRadio software. In addition to access to more than 5,000 Internet radio channels, including XM Satellite Radio Online*(NASDAQ:XMSR), Shoutcast and radioio (Pink Sheets:IWDM), the new version of SelectRadio software, an add-on program for smartphones and PDAs, has added:

„X More than 20 new music channels from top online broadcaster AccuRadio, including dedicated Broadway, Celtic, classical, comedy, Mozart, and Motown channels and more.

„X Commercial-free versions of all radioio music channels using the SoundPass(sm)* subscription service

„X 20 live worldwide news channels, including BBC, Bloomberg, CNN, CSPAN, ESPNews, MSNBC, NPR, Reuters, The Weather Channel and WRN

„X 20 live talk channels covering sports, financial and current events, with the top personalities broadcast in several time slots from around the country

According to a new Internet and Multimedia 2006 Aribitron/Edison Media Research study, the weekly internet radio audience has increased more than 50 percent in the last year.

Noted Kurt Hanson, Internet radio industry expert and CEO of AccuRadio, ˇ§Mobile access is key to the continued expansion of the Internet radio audience and to increased listening hours. We are excited to help our listeners take AccuRadio on the go with the innovative convenience and control capabilities of the new SelectRadio software.ˇ¨

The new version of SelectRadio software also adds new single-line and scrolling display modes to help users browse channels. Listeners can use SelectRadio softwareˇ¦s HyperScan technology to monitor what songs and artists are playing on their favorite channels. For example, users with square-screen smartphones, such as the Treo 700w and HP hw69xx, can now keep eight of their favorite channels in view on the screen. Users with portrait-mode screens, such as the UT Starcom 6700 and Dell Axim x51v, can now keep 15 channels in view with the new SelectRadio display modes. Users can easily search, group and organize their favorite channels to create a variety of presets for easy access and monitoring.


SelectRadio software uses the wireless handheld network connection to provide live radio access on the go, in the office or at home. Since many new wireless handhelds offer multiple network connection options, the new version of SelectRadio provides a connection utility to help automatically establish a network connection. In addition, the new utility helps users check their connection status and available bitrate as they move within or across network coverage areas.

SelectRadio software is compatible with Intel XScale 270-series handheld phones and PDAs such as the latest Dell Axim* models, many HP iPaq* models and others with Microsoft Windows* Mobile 2003/WM 5.0 PPC or Phone Edition operating systems. For live listening, SelectRadio software requires a network connection via either the handheld wireless GPRS/EDGE, EVDO, or WiFi connection or through the USB ActiveSync connection to the desktop. SelectRadio software is priced at $25 for a device-specific license. Customers using licensed copies of SelectRadio v1.x can upgrade the same device to v2.0 for free. A free 10-day fully functional trial is available for evaluation prior to purchase at www.selectradio.com.   (Source: Press Release)

In addition, the new note’s icon indicates if a note has attachments, giving users the ability to e-mail PhatNotes documents with voice notes and other attachments directly from PhatNotes.

"We are pleased to offer Motorola Q users one of the most popular programs in the handheld community, which is now optimized specifically for this device,” said Stan Miasnikov, president of PhatWare.
