My favorite, and the most popular music streaming service on the web, Pandora, has finally arrived on Windows Mobile!
I say finally because Pandora started working on a Windows Mobile application a couple of years ago. However, after distribution deals with AT&T and Sprint was entered, and their requirement was that it needed to work on their standard phones. Pandora decided to then shift their efforts… At that point, I will let Tom Conrad, CTO of Pandora, tell the rest of the story. (Thank You Tom!!!)
If you are not familiar with Pandora Radio, it is your own FREE personalized radio and available to stream music on your Windows Mobile handset (or browser on your PC). You start using Pandora by simply searching for the name of one of your favorite artists, songs or classical composers and Pandora will create a “station” that plays their music and more music like it.
If you’re already a Pandora user, all you have to do is sign in to access all of your existing stations from the app. The only Windows Mobile devices that Pandora’s application currently supports (when installed from their website) is the Motorola Q9c, and HTC XV6900 / Touch. However, see my buddy Anand Iyer’s post at Startup Zone, to learn about installing it on other Windows Mobile phones!
