Alba launches Pocket DAB/FM/MP3 player


A budget pocket DAB isn’t a new idea, but one that doubles up as an MP3 player might be. Enter the Alba Pocket DAB/FM/MP3 player.

The player can jump between MP3 and DAB (or FM if you prefer) at the flick of a switch. As an MP3 player, it incorporates an SD/MMC memory card slot to play up to 1GB of your favourite MP3 (or WMA) tracks. The player is powered by an internal rechargeable battery, which should give around 10 hours playback.

The Alba Pocket player comes complete with in-ear headphones, an AC adaptor and carry case for around £110.
