• Enabling a link, pressing the red button to the lower-right, to a radio station's mobile website.
  • This logo isn't sent via DAB; unfortunately, it's part of the firmware of this radio.
  • Of course, this phone ought to understand URLs and make them clickable...
  • This button gives a list of all radio stations available
  • This button lets you put this station on speakerphone - neat addition to the software on the test device I used last year.
  • Signal strength. Note that I was indoors at the time, and we're not in a great area - yet, full signal strength. Good.
  • Only available on Virgin Mobile. This is a specially-made and branded HTC device.
  • Actually, nothing to do with Virgin Mobile
  • I assume this is the time according to the DAB multiplex, not the time according to the phone. (And I assume they're not connected - not sure whether this is true.)
  • The 'red button'. Also the 'TV' button for quick access to the TV features.

Virgin Mobile Lobster phone - Virgin Radio

In-built DAB receiver in this phone, getting scrolling text (which doesn't scroll since the screen's big enough). Showing an ad for Barclays.

This phone also decodes television broadcast over DAB, using the DAB-IP protocol and some Microsoft Windows Media encoding. Surprisingly watchable.

    don't the URLs work, or was this a coding problem at Virgin Radio? That sounds bizarre...

    That's just scrolling DAB text: however, you'd have thought the phone might recognise URLs in that DAB text...
