Tap on the App Store ( app catalog). Search for net2streams. You will see net2streams app. Install the app. Open the app. Then search for Telugu” or “TORI”. You will see Teluguone radio shoutcast stations ( east coast, west coast, India..) . Tap on the search results to add. Start listening the radio.

RIM BlackBerry

Windows Mobile 6.0 / 6.1
Since there is no elegant market place linked to this dinosaur operating system it will be bit of work. However most Windows Mobile users are geek enough to figure it out. Get the cab file for kinoma at http://kinoma.com/freeplay/get/ or from cnet downloads. Install the player. Search for ‘Telugu’ or ‘TORI’. You will see Teluguone stations choose the one that is of your interest.

  1. Bhanu,

    Which is better:
    A) Sprint new line with 4G Evo (over $60/mo); or
    B) Adding another line on Verizon with 3G Droid Incredible (monthly increase $10)

    It is my decision time….

    • Mohan garu,
      If you want best signal all the time, then Verizon is the way to go. You might want to test drive the Droid, Droid Incredible and Palm Pre,

      If you are fine with occasional call drops then Sprint gives more bag for the buck. You will get a Navigation system , TV and unlimited texting (a total of 30 bucks more) as part of the Sprint data plan. Plus by August we will have 4G network here. Which will be handy to check emails and browse the net.

      Overall Sprint gives cheaper plan. And the Evo is great phone.Though I prefer the Palm Pre.
      Finally I would say go with Sprint and check the Evo, Samsung Moment, Palm Pre before you buy it.
      In addition you might get a discount at both Verizon and Sprint too. Ask for university discount.

  2. Hi Bhanu Garu,

    sorry my phone is Nokia 5530 XpressMusic not 5230.

    Thanks

    • Narendra garu,
      I wish I had a Nokia phone to explore the streaming option. If your real player doesn’t work try below

      http://store.ovi.com/content/22436?clickSource=publisher+channel

      Install this free app.
      This app lets you search for shoutcast streaming stations. Then search for Teluguone or TORI.
      It should work, but again having no knowledge on the Nokia platform I cannot confirm it.
      Good luck.

  3. @bhanu, I can’t believe you dumped webos. 🙂 how is evo treating you so far? For palm pre, I also recommend radiotime app which has so many other features. Good post dude.

    • KP Garu, Truth to be told,I Love WebOS, and I did not dump the Pre. Just testing the Evo. The UI and operating system on WebOS is miles ahead of any OS out there. The form factor of Pre is perfect.

      Most striking feature of the Evo is the screen. Period.No phone ( even the new iPhone 4) comes closer. The rest of UI is a mix of confusion and customization. No wonder the guy who designed the UI at Palm moved to Google now. Android seriously needs a clean clutter free UI.
      The Pre can only be dumped for another improved Pre :).

      On the side note, Youtube on Evo is greatest thing since slice bread. I was able to watch Full length Telugu movies on Evo.watched a good 30 mins of Bendu Appa Rao RMP using the Evo back stand.The HD Youtube works fine too.

      Here is the very bad part of Evo / Android in general.

      You will keep pressing center button or launcher to search for apps which is couple more clicks than WebOS.

      You cannot jump between two apps with a single flick.

      You have no idea how many apps are running, there is no visual display of it.You have to press and hold home button to see whats going on.
      The universal search on Pre is pure genius, which is available on Evo , but takes couple of more clicks and taps.

      For no reason few apps “Amazon MP3 Store”,”News Feed”,”Sprint Navigation”,”Voice memos” and few other keep running in the background draining battery. I killed them with the task manager. They kept coming back in an hour. This is a huge battery drain.You are talking 10 plus apps always running ( in addition there is background data services like email,text….).

      The Evo is promptly going back today for sure. We keep hearing the hardware quality of the Pre is bad, here is my experience with the Evo. The Accelerometer died on my Evo only an hour after purchasing it (“I did not even hack/customize it”). The apps are either stuck in landscape mode or portrait based on their default launch options. Yuk.

      But I would say if you are eligible buy it, take it. For $ 199.00 you can get a music player with all the apps and bigger screen. I have a mini project to turn it into GPS ( un assisted from cell signal). Lets see.
      The only reason I might want to keep it as an alternative to iPod Touch. In which case I will keep it for a month then reactivate the Pre.

      Not a pleasant experience overall except for the gorgeous screen.

    • KP garu,
      Thanks for the tip. I will update the post with radiotime.

  4. Bhanu Prakash….. I am speechless. Fantastic job. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!

    • Mohan garu , my pleasure. The new Evo phone did come in handy with its giant screen. Hopefully folks can make use of the instructions.

  5. Took me a while to post this . The android screenshot app came in handy on my Evo.
    Let me know if anyone has problems.

    • I have Nokia 5800 and can listen to tori on real player app by typing the ip address and port number

      For Ex: http://38.101.195.5:8232.

      I have saved book marks for each of the ports (stations) and can listen with just click of a button.

      • Raghu garu,
        Yup,you can stream. Basically if you have an app that can do streaming you are good to go. You don’t need a TORI player (its good to have one though) to listen to Teluguone.Nokia is a mature platform. You can get much out of that phone.

        • Hi Bhanu Garu,

          Thanks for this wonderfull post.
          I have a Nokia 5230 phone and trying to listen Tori with WiFi, but not succeded. Phone came with real player installed. Can you please share your thoughts how can i do this on my phone? As Raghu garu told I typed the url and saved it and try to play it.
          Am not a tech pro on this, So please ignore if this is a basic question.
