"PenguinRadio, Inc. and Ineva.com today announced that they will work together on a Linux-based Internet car radio that will receive thousands of radio stations using Ellipso's satellite Internet service. Ineva is the Internet interface for the Ellipso and Virtual Geo global satellite systems."

"The PenguinRadio is an Internet accessible radio that works with an existing stereo system to bring thousands of radio stations that broadcast on the Internet directly into a stereo -- no pc needed. This device, which will soon be available for the home market, will be modified to work in an automobile and in portable devices and eventually available worldwide via the Ellipso satellite system."

"Imagine any radio station in the world being accessible from any place on Earth" PenguinRadio CEO Andrew Leyden said. "Ellipso's satellite Internet service, partnered with PenguinRadio's Linux-based Internet audio device, can allow anyone, anywhere to listen to Internet audio in a car, on a picnic, or even in a rural isolated area without land-line Internet access."
