RAIN 10/29: Wal-Mart to sell T-Mobile G1; iPhone app controls Sonos

Posted on: 10/29/2008

WAL-MART WILL SELL T-MOBILE ANDROID PHONE FOR $50 LESS THAN IPHONE

Wal-Mart will partner with T-Mobile to sell the G1, the first phone equipped with Google’s Android mobile operating system, for $148.88. The G1 is positioned as a mobile-Internet competitor to Apple’s iPhone, and at that price point, will come in $50 cheaper.

The G1 will go on sale at Wal-Mart Nov. 24. Read more about the G1 in RAIN here. Read more about today’s news in AdAge here.

CONTROL YOUR SONOS HOME SYSTEM WITH YOUR iPHONE

The iPhone and iPod Touch devices can now serve as a touchscreen remote for Sonos’ home music system, even streaming Pandora, Last.fm and other Internet radio stations without a computer or server being on. For more, read CNet’s coverage here. Digital Music News’s Paul Resnikoff offers his take here.

SIRIUSXM HOST DEE SNIDER: NO FUTURE FOR SATELLITE RADIO

Former Twisted Sister frontman Dee Snider says his inventor friend has convinced him that radio’s future is the Internet, not satellite radio. Snider reportedly told Steppin’ Out magazine his inventor friend, Don Specter, told him, “‘Satellite was doomed before it started… When you have iPhones with the Internet, GPS and cameras attached with Wi-Fi, people will listen to Internet radio… It’s all contained on one piece of equipment. Nobody wants to carry more then that around.’” Pointing out the potential of wireless broadband and the difficulties satellite’s had rolling out, Snider recalls his friend saying, “‘Sirius is going to have to go to the Internet as well. It’s going to have to change from satellite over to a server.’” Two interesting points here: First, Snider is currently employed as a host on SiriusXM. Second, we were unable to find any background on Snider’s friend Don Specter (though Snider describes him as the third largest patent holder in the world, the inventor of the hyperbaric chamber, a brain surgeon at 14, and the basis of the IQ system).
