As must-have mobile apps go, Pandora
ranks high on the books -- with the proliferation of 3G and WiFi, it comes dangerously close to obsoleting the need to carry around your own 8, 16, or 32GB worth of tracks -- and another big-ticket platform has now joined the compatibility short list. This time around it's Android that's getting hooked up, offering a home screen widget and background playback (we'd expect no less on Android) over whatever type of network connection you've got handy. Using Wham!
as a station seed is still indefensible, but we'd say the argument for scooping up a G1
, myTouch 3G
, or Sprint Hero
(when it's available, anyhow) just got a bit stronger.
