Nokia is working with Hewlett Packard to develop and sell a mobile phone service and content delivery platform that allows users to listen to radio broadcasts synchronised with interactive visuals and text on their handsets.
With the companies' 'Visual Radio', users will be able to view information such as facts about artists and upcoming concert dates while simultaneously listening to music broadcasts.
The service will also allow users to purchase ring tones and other digital content associated with their favorite music and artists.
The same technology could be used for traffic and weather reports, talk radio and sports broadcasts, the companies added.
Visual Radio gives broadcasters a new way to attract listeners and build brand loyalty by offering an interactive communications experience.
Broadcasters can also learn more about their audiences when users participate in surveys, quizzes and special offers that appear on Visual Radio-enabled handset displays.
HP will sell the solution to mobile operators and FM radio stations in select countries this summer. Nokia also plans to make the Visual Radio technology available to other handset manufacturers.
Nokia Multimedia senior vice president Tarja Paakkonen said in a statement: "The Visual Radio solution will redefine the radio experience for millions of radio viewers in the coming years."
