Review: HTC Freestyle
The Freestyle has a number of music-related applications on board. First, there's the AT&T Radio application. This app streams music over a data connection. It's not very good. Second, there's AT&T Music. This software allows you to browse for and purchase music tracks, as well as stream music stations and listen to your own music. It's not a best-of-kind piece of software. There's also the FM radio, which was my favorite. Why? It's free to use. You can also sideload your own non-copy-protected content.
On the video side of the equation, there are three choices on the Freestyle. First, there's MobiTV. This is a known entity. It offers streaming video content and generally works well. The Freestyle also packs AT&T Video, which is a different streaming service that offers shorter, snack-sized video clips rather than entire shows. Last, there's Music Videos, which is run by MobiTV, but is focused on only music videos. You cannot sideload your own video content.

Based on my experiences with the music and video options, it's clear we're in feature phone territory.
