We think not. Our users have been doing internet radio in their cars for years (at least 2005) . We will most likely stop by their booth to “hear” how this compares to competing solutions like Panodora.
It is hard to beat 160kb radio streams from stations like Radioparadise . In my opinion current miRoamer streams sound HORRIBLE!
See the full release and Talk about this here:
"miRoamer (www.miroamer.com), a global innovator in the Internet radio industry, will announce a partnership with Blaupunkt, one of the world’s leading consumer electronics manufacturers and specialists in car multimedia, at CES 2009. The partnership will introduce the world’s first Internet car radio, giving drivers access the world’s largest and most diverse selection of Internet radio content through their car stereo.
Today, users want to jump in their car and go – no pulling out third-party devices or plugging in cords to access their music and information. The world’s first Internet car radio enables drivers of vehicles fitted with new Blaupunkt stereos to tune into miRoamer’s tens of thousands of radio stations from around the world. Now, with the simple push of a button, users can access AM/FM stations or Internet radio’s thousands of music, entertainment, news and talk stations from around the world, all from the same car stereo.
miRoamer will be giving live demonstrations at Booth #5418 in the North Hall at CES, as well as at Table # 43 at CES Unveiled. Any interest in being one of the first to see the world’s first Internet car radio? Thanks!
