MSpot brings radio to cellphones

Sprint A790

A new start-up called MSpot is hoping to challenge satellite radio with its new MSpot Radio service for cellphones. The service will be initially targeted at users of Sprint's PCS Vision service but since it's simply a streaming media feed delivered over the web, any web-ready phone will be able to pick it up, assuming that your data plan can handle it, that is.  The service will only include 13 channels of programming to start with, including feeds from National Public Radio, and will cost you $5.95 a month. Note that MSpot's not the first company to have grand ideas about taking on satellite radio; Virgin Mobile just introduced a similar service last month, and there have been various other ways to stream Internet radio to cellphones for years.
