Having teased us with scant details yesterday, Nokia has spilt the beans on its new Home Music WiFi radio. As expected, the audio streamer is a UPnP compatible internet and FM radio, with a color display, WiFi b/g and a remote control. As well as podcasts and internet radio stations, it will play music stored on your home network.
Connections include wired ethernet, a USB type-A socket for hooking up your PMP or a memory stick containing music tracks, an SPDIF output, RCA line-out, 3.5mm line-in for alternative music sources, and an FM antenna connection. On the front there’s also a 3.5mm headphone socket. The single integrated 10W speaker isn’t going to blow anybody away, but you could always plumb it through your home stereo.
Unfortunately there’s no battery option, only AC power, so you won’t be taking the Home Music on a picnic (unless it’s a picnic near a power point, obviously). No word on price or availability as yet.
