    Some carriers have had some Smartphone devices that work with Pandora
    for the last 18 months. OK. How many accounts has Pandora setup for
    all smartphones all platforms over eighteen months?

    12,000

    Now look at this!

    Pandora Media's Radio application [App Store] has acheived 350,000
    installations on the iPhone within the first 6 days!

    Does that boggle the mind or what?

    The iPhone take up of Pandora was 350,000 in six days compared to only
    12,000 over 540 days for all that pre iPhone crap!

    Apple is apparently the only provider that will allow developers to
    offer a free ad-supported distribution model. Pandora plans on
    monetizing their iPhone application through ads in the future.

    Facebook and Loopt have also seen impressive adoption over the course
    of a week. Loopt claims the average iPhone user is 47 times more
    active on their network than other platforms.

    When discussing the promise of Google's Android mobile platform, some
    developers were skeptical about the experience:

    "I need Android like I need a hole in the head," said Pandora's
    Conrad, picturing it as "another OS platform that sits on top of buggy
    firmware, with devices with hundreds of manufacturers, with different
    characteristics."

    BTW

    AT&T banned peer to peer file transfer on their 3G network today.

    AT&T has been examining network data usage and possibly even looking
    at the data packets to spot P2P.

    Look for a warning from AT&T.

    AT&T Bans Use of Peer-to-Peer File Sharing on 3G Network
    By Editor Wireless and Mobile News on July 29, 2008 11:31 AM

    According to MultiChannel News, AT&Tís 3G bandwagon does not include
    peer-to-peer downloading and AT&T bans the use of 3G networks for P2P
    file sharing and told an FCC official that anyone caught with their
    hands the P-2-P cookie jar will be terminated.

    ďAT&Tís terms of service for mobile wireless broadband customers
    prohibit all uses that may cause extreme network capacity issues, and
    explicitly identify P2P file sharing applications as such a use,Ē said
    Robert Quinn, AT&Tís senior vice president of federal regulatory
    affairs in letter to FCC member Robert McDowel

    ďUnder these terms of service, which are similar to those of other
    wireless providers, use of a P2P file sharing application would
    constitute a material breach of contract for which the userís service
    could be terminated,Ē Quinn added.

    First AT&T warns customers in writing that their relationship is in
    jeopardy for using banned P2P apps.

    Stupid, isn't it? Nannied iPhoners have no FM radio to listen to, their
    browser doesn't support Flash, Realaudio/video, streaming MP3, etc, so they
    can't listen to Shoutcast or Xiph or Live365 stations for free, along with
    the thousands of other radio and TV stations streaming 24/7 free. iPhone
    has no open source media player, and won't if the FruitFarm has anything to
    do with it, hackers aside, so it can only play what Apple thinks you should
    PAY for, like this stupid Pandora Media Radio app approved by the nannies
    because they're being PAID to play it.

    You're way too smart for this to be some kind of oversight on such gross
    stupidity. Why do you point these dumb apps out to us?

    We need to port Streamtuner or World99TV and especially mplayer to the
    FruitFone. THEN you'd have something to brag about!....

    .....playing radios the rest of us take for granted....

    Why does everything on that box have to have a BOX OFFICE standing in front
    of it??

    Precisely why you are not allowed to actually DO anything online with an
    iPhonePod device. Anything that uses bandwidth is forbidden.....

    No, not really- Pandora is free on PCs, but costs $3/month (on Sprint) or
    $9/month on AT&T. It's free on the iPhone. And far from being on "all
    platforms," Pandora is only available on a select few "dumbphones" on those
    two carriers.

    Until iPhone, AT&T didn't really promote Pandora, except by including a
    subscription linkit on the MEdia Net WAP deck.

    Which proves we've discovered what most people are willing to pay for
    Pandora: $0, just like on their PC.

    Really? Interesting. I assumed they just have a commission deal with
    iTunes, like on the PC (if you click a "buy" link for a song/album from
    Pandora on the desktop from Amazon or iTunes, Pandora gets a cut.)

    When did they ever allow it? ;-)

    VoIP will likely be next, unfortunately...
