Yep. It connects to a URL too. Not only that but after
paying/connecting with GPRS, it finds no Visual IDs for my local area.

No big deal because listening to the radio is what's important, but the
shoddy preparation of that piece of software just grates. WLAN should
be a valid access point option. It seems the N95's Visual Radio was
designed more with something like the N73 in mind (ie. no wifi).
