Slacker Radio has been spreading its wings lately, which kind of defies its Slacker name. The online radio station has landed itself on the new Galaxy Tablet computer from Samsung (pre-installed ), as well as the Windows Mobile platform, including Windows Phone 7.

Slacker Radio is an advertising-supported streaming radio station that lets you stream music of different genres from your mobile phone or computer. It's a smart technology, which is to say that it learns your musical preferences when you vote on the songs you hear. Vote yes on a song, and Slacker feeds you similiar music. Vote now on a song or artist and you won't hear them anymore.

The Slacker Radio subscription model is $7.50 a month for Slacker Premium Radio, which allows for downloading of songs for offline play. It eliminates ads and allows users to skip over as many songs as they want. Slacker Radio Plus also has unlimited skips and no ads, but doesn't allow downloading. It goes for $3.99 a month.

There are somewhere between 200,000 and 500,000 people with a Slacker Radio subscription, according to estimates by Digital Music News.
