Roberts Radio launches WiFi Internet Radio/Media Player

Roberts Radio launches WiFi Internet Radio/Media Player

I love WiFi radios, I have never used one (except on my PC, never a standalone unit though), but I love the concept, and this latest success from Roberts Radio is no exception with its sleek, basic appearance and WiFi functionality. You can even plug in your MP3 player to this radio.

Why is it that the companies from far away lands that no one has ever heard of are the people releasing the PMPs that could actually give the iPod a run for its money? Why can’t Microsoft, a multi-billion dollar company come up with something that a company in Korea with an operating budget likely in the millions can come up with?

That’s the distributors name, manufacturers name, and then the last 5 are the actual product name, in the title. What a mouthful, anyways, its an Italian device, and it’s a different look at a similar idea.

Basically they took and built a decent MP3 player, and then added the GSM phone functionality, instead of the general way of thought where they build a decent phone and then add an MP3 player function to it. Its very basic too, it weighs 60 grams, has an MP3 player, Phone, USB, Bluetooth FM Radio, Voice Recorder, and a 1GB microSD card that comes with it.

It comes pre-loaded with 10 films, surprisingly none of them featuring Charlie Chaplin. Go figure. No, not really, they are all films of Charlie, but you probably already guessed that.

You can still get it in 20, 30, 80, or 120 gigabyte versions and aside from the 10 Chaplin films you can load it up with MPEG-4, WMV, MP3, WMA, WAV, JPEG, BMP, and PNG media files. You can also surf the net via the integrated wifi connection.

The portable Card Mini Boom Box

A bit of nostalgia for your MP3 player. This faux boom box is a bit of a do-it-yourself project. It's shipped as flat cardboard with two speakers and two AA batteries. I can't guarantee that the sound quality will be phenomenal, but it would be a cool desktop speaker system for the cubical.

So it offers up support for AOL video and the Rhapsody music store. It also has a form factor and interface quite similar to that of the iPod.

But it offers up a unique feature, wireless downloads from the Rhapsody-to-go music service and from AOL’s video service via WiFi. It also has an FM transmitter just like the Zune.

Check out this little, very little MP3 player. The headphones are the biggest part of the whole setup.

So the MP3 player portion has an male audio jack that plugs into either the base station or the headphone’s female audio ports. I assume the player is controlled by twisting it or something like that.

With so much hype around the new Zune, all eyes seem to be on Microsoft. They had big changes to make over their previous model, and the MP3 player market is so cutthroat at the moment. Of course when I speak of cutthroat I’m referring to the swift knife in Steve Jobs hand known as the iPod.

Parrot Boombox review – Who knew Parrot could squawk this loud?

Parrot Boombox review – Who knew Parrot could squawk this loud?

Parrot is taking a venture off the beaten trail with this little beauty. Can’t seem to find a spot for it on the dash of your car? Good, because it doesn’t go there. The Parrot “Boombox” is Parrot’s first entry into the vast and competitive world of in-home speaker stations. Let us all hope that this is only the beginning of Parrot’s fight into the home stereo market.

The Parrot Boombox is a Bluetooth based speaker system that will link to your Bluetooth 2.0 cell phone, MP3 player or even your laptop. It truly fills the room with all of those songs that were so longing to be freed from the mono speaker, low quality sound that a lot of devices deliver.

Technonia IXING TM-M1 PMP

Its thin, its pretty, its pretty thin. That’s just about the best way to summarize this 5.6mm thin MP3 player.

Well, that and the fact it has an easily forgettable, far too long, and highly confusing name, the IXING TM-M1. The screen is OLED and it appears to have touch sensitive buttons like that of the LG Chocolate.

There are some pretty amazing features that come with this PMP too. Lets start with the screen, its 4-inches diagonal, 16 million colors, and has a res of 800x480, that’s as good as my TV.

Then there is the FM radio with built in recorder, a USB host, MPEG-4 video recorder, and up to 1280x720 HD output. Codec support includes FLAC, DivX, and OGG, and I assume there is a sufficiently longer list of other codecs supported as that list doesn’t have any picture formats and no MP3 support in the list either.

Sure, it works with CD’s too, but that’s about as analog as it gets. It will read, and work with, MP3’s off of both a computer and CD-R/RW discs.

If you are using it with a computer, it apparently navigates through your file system to find the files you want similar to an iPod. There are “Scratch Jog Effects” which I assume is what they have created to simulate scratching since you are using media where there isn’t anything to scratch.
