Visualise your Radio



'Visual Radio' – The service allows listeners to tune in to FM radio and at the same time, view interactive information and graphics on their Nokia mobile handset.

Promoted by mobile major Nokia, a lot of FM broadcasters vying the increasing subscriber base in India – the concept is currently being evaluated by many with pilots in the offing.

“This would be a good way to merge synergies between a FM broadcaster and a telecom service provider. As both of them are looking at ways to increase profitability – technology driven concepts like this would make a lot of sense in developing markets like India,” Isokoski added.


Wondering, if we could have named it Interactive Radio analogous to Interactive TV.
