Nokia adds FM Radio to the mobile experience

Nokia has unveiled a new FM Radio Headset that enables users to tune in and receive stereo sound via their mobile phone. Both radio and phone functions can be accessed directly from the headset unit and the stereo earpieces have the added benefit of delivering phone conversation to both ears, ending the need to cover one ear in noisy situations.

The FM Radio Headset draws its power from the phone's rechargeable battery and when a phone call comes in, the FM Radio can be switched from radio to phone mode, automatically returning to the radio when the conversation is over.

The device connects to the "Pop-Port" on compatible Nokia handsets and navigation is via the built-in LCD display.

Initially be compatible with the Nokia 6100 phone, the FM Radio Headset is expected to be available mid-2003.
