Radio Heads Mobile

Russel Buckley of the Mobile Technology Weblog writes that in his opinion the obvious partner for the mobile phone is not television and video, but rather radio. It's a thought worth pursuing; when you're mobile you have less ability to concentrate on pictures, whereas radio can be appreciated and absorbed while participating in almost any activity. However, while it's true that the technology allows the user to go beyond listening to a standard radio station and instead get more personalised radio broadcasts, I have to wonder if there is the commercial interest in radio over video. Then again, maybe we're all so hell-bent on putting pictures on our phones and PDA's we're looking past the obvious.
