Sprint Nextel to offer streaming Rhapsody radio

updated 11:20 am EDT, Mon September 19, 2005

Sprint Nextel, Rhapsody

Sprint Nextel today announced it will provide its cellphone customers with access to via the Rhapsody radio service. Unlike the iTunes-based Motorola ROKR available from Cingular, Sprint users will stream radio stations and podcasts over the wireless network, rather than downloading music to the phone. Roger Entner, Ovum consultant, stated "the important difference is that, unlike the ROKR, you do not need to sync your telephone to a PC to get your music. It's there on your phone and it's convenient." The Rhapsody radio service will be offered for $7 per month on top of the Sprint Vision Multimedia Service mobile internet package, and will feature on-demand music videos, according to a report from Reuters.
