Open source Nokia Net player software proves powerful, pleasant

Posted on: 02/19/2008

From SymbianOne: We’ve heard loads recently about Open Source and making waves most recently is the addition of Internet Radio to the growing list of Nokia’s Open Source applications. Recall Nokia Research Center has made available the Internet Radio Client as a free application to the community.

Naturally, curiosity got the best of me as I spent some time recently browsing the available apps for my new Nokia N95 8GB… lo and behold, there was included on the deck a link to download the new open source Internet radio application…

Once installed, the application is friendly and efficient, providing access to a seemingly endless list of radio stations from around the Globe. Stations are presented by category or genre, geographic location, language, or listed by favorites. Clicking the “Station Guide” option brings up all of these available categories…

A nice feature of the application is the way that the music continues to playwhile you navigate around in search of other cool music stops.

Browsing by language is likely a popular way to select some entertainment. Currently there are some 304 English stations and many others are available including Finnish, French, Dutch, German, Greek, Hebrew and any other language you can think of are provided…

Perhaps the most pleasant surprise in using this cool, free service is the excellent sound quality provided by the N95 8GB… listening to the music through the loudspeaker is actually very bearable and borders closely on the enjoyable. Obviously some speakers or a nice headset would provide a much better listening experience but having the option to simply play aloud is nice.

  1. The evolution of net radio in the portable realm is as exciting in the present century as transitor radios were in the last one. RAIN is providing a great service to webcasters by keeping us posted on these developments.
