Phantom 105.2 has announced that it is now streaming live on Blackberry mobile devices via the Nobex radio Companion application. Users can download the free application and stream the station live to their device. This new departure means that the Phantom is now available on the three major smartphone brands – Nokia, Blackberry (RIM) and Apple. Late last year Phantom launched its own iPhone application that has achieved Top 10 status in the iTunes App store.
“Mobile devices offer a new and exciting means to access radio and Phantom is leading the field in terms of availability,” said Brian Daly, Phantom’s marketing manager. “It offers us an opportunity to offer enhanced services for our listeners and advertisers including track information, brand information and additional text and multimedia services. It emphasises that radio is adapting perfectly to digital and is still the ultimate portable medium.”
Phantom 105.2 is also available on 105.2MHz FM in Dublin, UPC channel 935 and online at phantom.ie
