Default internet audio on a data stream phone?

someone must be doing this. I can data stream into a laptop. What about
data streaming into a cell phone and playing it on a speaker phone?

I can listen to commercial radio via modem at home, 25 kbps should be
adequate. QNC Verizon is about half of that, so I will need just a bit more
speed.

No, no one really is. Realize that even with the "high-speed" wireless
phone networks you're hearing about today, the best you can hope to do
is between 50-70K. When you stream audio onto a laptop, you're using a
higher bandwidth connection, as a rule, and definitely are able to
take advantage of much more processor power than is available on a
cell phone.

Perhaps the next time your connected on the laptop, goto www.obp.org, fire
up the listen online via media player. Let me know if it works.

No way, no how. And you're confusing kilobits with kilobytes. There's
no way you can realistically expect to listen to radio at less than 56
kilobits. That is possible with some of today's wireless networks, but
even then, that kind of speed isn't consistently possible enough to
think real-time streaming is realistic. I love my GRPS T-Mobile
connection for many things, but would never want to try and endure
streaming media across it.
