Pandora goes mobile

Pandora is a unique music streaming service. It pays attention to the music that you like, as well as the joints that you don’t, adapting over time to provide users with a tailor made playlist that continually provides users with new music that meets their unique listening habits. The service has been embroiled in a number of legal battles as of late but seems to have emerged victorious, at least if a recent press conference is any indication. The company announced several new offerings, including a partnership with Sprint that will allow Power Vision subscribers to access their Pandora radio station on the go. Pandora for Sprint will be free for 30 days, after which the service will cost users $3 a month. Not too bad when you consider the sheer breadth of content (4.7 billion songs) that Pandora is choosing from. Could this signal a revolution in mobile radio streaming? Who knows, but it’s clear that this should give XM mobile a run for its money.
