That would be Radia with an a, and it has nothing to do with music yet.
The Radia is a cell phone concept that takes touch display to a logical conclusion. The phone itself is innovative in form, resembling a petri dish more than a clamshell.

Apple (AAPL) plans to sell its iPhone through an exclusive marketing agreement with AT&T’s (T) Cingular Wireless unit. While Cingular’s data network is woefully slow, the Wi-Fi feature will give the mobile phone high speed data capability when users can find Wi-Fi hotspots.

So you’re not calling Cingular the new AT&T Mobility yet? Yeah, we aren’t either. But the company thinks that the iPhone can help with some of its re-branding problems.
The folks at UBS Investment Research sat in on AT&T’s latest investor meeting and say that AT&T is disappointed with last quarter’s postpaid subscribers adds and partially attributes that to the re-branding efforts of its mobile service to the clunky AT&T Mobility. (We’ve mostly been hearing it as the new AT&T.) But Ma Bell is hoping the iPhone will be the glue that makes the new re-branding stick:
