Why would U want this service, as when U R on the net, U can choose which radio station to listen to anyway. Buy a Walkman.

Get a 3G mobile phone and connect it with your laptop. If you have a lot of money to burn, why not?

It can be done without 3G by three ways
(1) A normal mobile phone with Infrared link and a laptop with Infrared link, just dial up as usual, but speed is only 9.6kbs (normal landline dialup is 56.6kbs). (2) Get a mobile PCcard modem for laptop and the same as (1) (3) A mobile phone with GPRS and link to laptop and use GPRS service, it is expensive and only 28.8bps.

3G is almost broadband.

Technically possible, but true mobile internet is only for people with a lot of money to burn.
