T3: Let’s be honest, DAB radio hasn’t really taken off in the car, so what hope for internet radio? Very little right now we suspect, but that doesn’t stop the Blaupunkt miRoamer-powered internet car radios being stylish pieces of kit.
Newly-introduced into the US market (and likely to hit the UK too), the radios use your Bluetooth-connected mobile phone for connectivity to stream any of the 16,000 radio stations from the miRoamer portal.
Just don’t stream via your PAYG handset, unless you’ve got a very understanding bank manager. And don’t even think about getting a continual stream of Bulgarian folk or Swedish pop once you leave a built-up area.
Mind you, when you do leave the big city, there’s always the option of traditional radio, CD or a USB-connected music player as back-up.
