    Question Can you do this?

    I am getting ready to purchase the 6600 (from Sprint) and was wondering if I would be able to recieve streaming audio from my fav radio station www.kexp.org ? They have three streaming rates and wondered if any of them worked in the 6600's browser.

    Plus, how good are the pictures (is there a mp rating)?

    Thanks!

    Thank you for joining pdaphonehome and welcome.

    Your topic "Can you do this?" doesn't quite express what you're seeking help with.

    Fortunately, everything you ask has already been answered. Use the little search button at the top.

    Don't mind him; he's a little cranky sometimes.

    But do please do the search function.

    I tried to go to kexp.org and it wouldn't load from the ppc. If you know the direct streaming link, that may work from WMP or GS Player.

    Oh, and the camera sucks. 1/2 a megapixel.

    > 1/2 a megapixel

    307Kpixel to be precise. Not even a lowly 1/3 megapixel.

    [Ehud pretends not to understand that mwfielder is pretending not to understand that the > was a quotation indicator]

    Why yes, that's what I mean when I said "Not even a lowly 1/3 megapixel."

    Sorry guys, you are right, the search function would have been a better shot initially. I guess that I am so excited about this purchase and I just dove in without testing the water first.

    I've been reading up on the streaming stuff and sounds like it is a hit or miss. I did find these url's http://www.kexp.org/audio/kexp.wmx or http://kexp-mp3-1.cac.washington.edu:8000/listen.pls and wondered if it worked in of the media players.

    I hate to admit this, but ever since my employer cut off streaming access, I have been dying without my kexp.org and that is the biggest reason that I'm considering the 6600.

    I'll keep digging around in the meantime.

    Thanks!
