Dec 1, 2008 - Ilounge conducted an online poll of its readers and asked: "Which of the following next-gen add-on features most interests you?" The poll response options were: add HD Radio, Ipod remote + mic, a joypad/controller, a plug-in keyboard, a larger screen, some other feature, or satisfied as-is. 2,000 votes were cast in the poll.

HD Radio received 28 percent of the vote, followed by a want of larger screens at 22 percent. The next four responses were tightly contested with only four percentage points separating the options. 14 percent said they were interested in Ipod remote + mic add-ons, 11 percent expressed interest in some other feature, and an equal amount said they were satisfied as-is. 10 percent said they were interested in a plug-in keyboard. Only 5 percent of respondents said they were interested in a joypad or controller add-on.

These results are in check with the idea of adding a radio receiver to more portable devices. Making it an HD Radio receiver provides an added boost for the technology. In addition, users of new consumer technology are probably more likely to accept the multicast and data capabilities of HD Radio, which will further propel the transmission system.
