Clear Channel Radio today announced that its wildly popular iheartradio mobile application will be available for Android devices, including one of Verizon Wireless’ newest smartphones, the DROID by Motorola, by Christmas.

Separately, the company announced Version 2.2 of the music and radio app is now available for BlackBerry. This release brings music videos and other on-demand content to the mobile app. As part of the latest upgrade to the app, Clear Channel worked closely with Verizon Wireless to integrate V Cast Music and enable mobile purchases of full-track downloads, ringtones and ringback tones into a special Verizon Wireless-only version of iheartradio.

“Applications like iheartradio are a big part of the future of mobile entertainment,” said Ed Ruth, director, strategic business development and partner management at Verizon Wireless. “It offers video, audio and embedded data over both real-time streams and on demand. And with this release, it integrates V CAST Music with the app, giving customers easy access to ringtones, ringback tones and full-track OTA downloads. It’s the ultimate in user choice and convenience, and it takes advantage of our advanced 3G network.”

“The incredibly high quality of Verizon Wireless’ 3G network is a wonderful showcase for ambitious application developers,” said Evan Harrison, president of Clear Channel Radio Digital. “The coverage and consistency enables us to design a top-flight user experience.”

More than four million unique people have already downloaded iheartradio. Further, audience engagement continues to increase each week. The application carries nearly 400 unique stations, including America’s most popular local radio stations and a growing number of digital-only channels such as Christina Aguilera Radio, Megadeth Radio, White House Brief and most recently, Pirate Radio. On-demand content from a wide range of artists includes the stunning new exclusive stripped version of “Empire State of Mind, Part II” from Alicia Keys and exclusive performances from Shakira, Tim McGraw, Coldplay and more.
