    It doesn't have the electronic component for a Radio FM experience.
    Only through a WIFI/3G uplink.

    also, from the BBC site they don't appear to stream content over 3G

    Aw I see.
    Would the streaming over 3G be a restriction with O2 rather than BBC?
    And we def need sth that can play the iplayer content for the BBC....

    So far I've been using the Podcasts, mp3, from the BBC over WiFi.

    I assume that the BBC iPlayer will work once Flash 10.1 is released for WebOS ?
    Thought of the day :
    No sense being pessimistic, it probably wouldn't work anyway

    Ok here is something interesting for you to try. I was discussing this with a colleague of mine at the office who has an iphone. BBC do the same on the iphone too. So it looks like its a BBC issue and not an O2. However he told me that if he starts streaming over WiFi and then pauses it and then swaps over 3G the stream will continue to play. I haven't tried this myself cause I have a lot to do at the moment but wanna give it a try and let us know if it works?

    As for the iPlayer on the iphone it doesn't seem to use flash. (I am certain it is flash though on the PC). I was told that flash is not supported on the iphone. Please anyone feel free to correct me on this one. Again this info has come from my colleague. I am wondering if BBC detects its a mobile device and uses some other streaming technology.

    Hope this helps

    so it doesnt play the radio when you go to the website and click the "listen live" player? (not iplayer)....

    and yes the iphone browser doesnt support flash.
    hopefully the new flash update will fix this issue for the palm pre, but who knows :S

    Also there arent any apps at the moment, the only app ive found is the Net2stream lite, but that doesnt even support search functions , only genres.
