While listening to FM radio might be preferable in many cases – the following suggestions all rely on you having a generous data plan on your BlackBerry – sadly not all RIM handsets have an FM receiver.
The result of this is that alternatives must be found if you want to listen to the radio. One great choice is iHeartRadio, a BlackBerry music and talk radio streaming app available from everythingberry.com. This is a great free app that features 250 stations across a range of genres, with the added benefit of being compatible with 7130 BlackBerry devices as long as your handset is on OS version 4.2 or later.
Give my review of iHeartRadio the once over, then make up your mind!
Coming somewhere between Internet Radio and Streaming Content is Last.fm, the popular online “station” that plays back tunes that it guesses you will like based on previous selections.
While there is no way to accurately set up a Last.fm account via your BlackBerry, once you have done this on your PC (simply go to Last.fm to create a free account and choose some favourite songs – the website does the rest!) you can download a Last.fm app and begin using your BlackBerry as a music player.
