Torian Infusion pocket internet radio nears UK launch

Share

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.
