The SmartRadio – eNewspaper Delivery

A Jpeg browser device like Digital Photo Album. It has a LCD Screen and a FM Radio interface. It costs less that $100 or comes free with 5 yrs subscription to a paper. – The SmartRadio

In the early morning it downloads the media on a built-in locked FM receive only radio.The FM newspaper station just transmits a few minutes of encrypted digital data. This is stored and static jpeg pages generated, which can be easily viewed and read using scroll and zoom using a convenient handheld device.

XML-HTML FM Radio – FM Radio enhancements

Electronic Engineering Magazines

FM radios consume less power and are affordable, now we should add a small LCD display like you have in cellphones. Xml should be frequency modulated and transmitted by fm stations in adjoining bands.

Xml is demodulated by fm radio and displayed in the lcd display on radio. This way news can be transmitted to many people without internet or tcp/ip. This is just one way broadcast of xml or html information, it need very less freq. Even html, jpeg, png and flash can be broadcast by fm radio. Product advertisements can also be sent in this format. Just tune into your xml fm radio station with your color lcd portable radio and presto news, ads, pictures, semi static but can reach millions. The radio tuner can tab over different stations.

If it works and people start using it, it could be a standardized paper reader which can manage multiple subscriptions. The subscription can be bought in the form of a chip card or monthly billing. Then it can move to color and slowly to WiMax with Rich Media and Accessibility like Read aloud Text, Translate and Search. This depends on how far the media can go in modernizing and how safe the system is. Too bad that looks like a Tablet Computer again.

Everything is converging to Wireless Internet and Cloud Computing. The Tech Prophets had foreseen this phenomena prematurely.Then there was a oracle from the sky …..

There is enough bandwidth on the sides to accommodate a Low Resolution Jpeg or GIF Animation. Seeing this on a Color LCD Radio will make it Smart.

Now we have SMS Song Requests. The names of the Enthusiasts can come on the LCD screen by xml. Some Text can be easily pumped on FM Frequencies as a thin xml file. Even the details of the Radio Show.

SmartRadio may be One way communication. But we can add static pictures and text !

We could also make a Hybrid Device that combines the Mobile Data or Wi-Fi.
