We’ve covered the Infusion pocket internet radio from Australian firm Torian on numerous occasions in the past, most recently, at this year’s CES. However, we’ve not had details of a possible UK launch – until now.
It’s now set to launch in the UK in the first quarter of 2007 (once distribution deals are finalised), with a price tag of around £130. What you get for your money is a pocket-sized internet radio that uses Wi-Fi to give you access to the thousands of stations out there. There’s 16 station presets, a blue LCD backlit screen, FM radio (if you’re not in a hot spot), MP3 player and storage via SD/MMC card (MP3, RealAudio, AAC, OGG.), time shift recording and connectivity via USB.
Battery life is around 5 hours for net radio, 8 hours for MP3 playback. We’ll let you know when you can get your hands on one when the exact date is announced.
