Now a Mumbai-based global software solutions player, Geodesic Information Systems, has created software that allows one to receive Internet Radio on a mobile phone. Called Mundu Radio, the beta or trial version of the necessary software for a virtual radio can be freely downloaded from http://radio.mundu.com/
It works on mobile phones (both GSM and CDMA) that are geared to access the Internet, usually through what is known as a General Packet Radio Service or GPRS, wherever that is provided by the mobile service provider. It streams the radio content at 24 kilobits a second or better.
It is said to be better than the MP3 music streaming that many mobile users are familiar with. Geodesic’s co-founder Managing Director, Kiran Kulkarni, says: “Mundu Radio heralds a new era of unlimited mobile edutainment for a generation on the move.”
