Visual Radio by Nokia start broadcasting
SBS Finland's Kiss FM is the first radio station in the world to begin Visual Radio broadcasts. This concept developed by Nokia and announced last year offers the listeners the possibility to give feedback and to participate in radio programs.

Kiss FM Visual Radio provides visual information on the song and artist currently playing on the radio, including album information and future tour dates. With a simple push of a button, the listeners can take part in competitions and audience polls, buy ring tones and wallpapers for their phone, and book tickets for the evening's concert.

"We are delighted to co-operate with Kiss FM in bringing Visual Radio to consumers. The Nokia 7710 (pictured), Nokia 3230 and the Nokia 6230i, which was launched earlier this week, are the first Nokia phones to feature the new Visual Radio application. More Visual Radio enabled handsets will be introduced later this year," says Tommi Mustonen, General Manager of Nokia's Visual Radio Business.

The application integrates radio content with timely information delivery over GPRS networks. In this case, HP worked in the integration front, while mobile operator Sonera provides the network support required.
